DIA DE LOS MEURTOS

MONARCH FESITVAL

Monday, November 1, 2021


Each year, monarchs migrate south. Thousands of monarchs migrate to Mexico. Their arrival in Mexico coincides with Dia de los Muertus or The Day of The Dead. Many Mexicans believe that the souls of those who have died return on those days, and they are lovingly remembered by family and friends. Monarchs have come to represent the souls of loved ones returning to visit each year. This important tradition is celebrated on November 1 and 2. The souls of babies and children are celebrated on November 1 and adults on November 2. To wrap up Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month (October), we will have a

Dia de los Muertus celebration at Remember Me Butterfly Haven (our monarch waystation) on Monday, November 1.

Stay tuned for details!

A Season to Remember

Stay tuned for details. We will celebrate the season and remember our Angel Babies at Remember Me Butterfly Haven.
