Three death masks: Can you tell the difference?

Take a close look at their makeup.

All are going to a party that takes place on October 31 of each year

 

Two of them are going to a Halloween event just to have fun while the other is going to a Day of the Dead event designed to honor those that have passed on. Both incorporate the skeleton in their events whereas two of them wear a skeleton mask with no idea of its significance or history other than it is cute whereas the other, is celebrating an event that is over 1,000 years old that is part of a Christian tradition.

Can you tell who is who?

 If you guessed the first person as going to the Day of the Dead celebration, you would be correct. The origin of wearing scary masks was to scare off evil or negative spirits that continues today as people celebrated Halloween. The origin of the Day of the Dead or All Souls Day was to remember loved ones that have passed on and to celebrate the life they had lived. In many parts of the world, this celebration starts on October31 and continues until November 2.

We live in a visual world where a 1,000-year-old Christian and 3,000-year-old pre-Hispanic cultures overshadowed by the lure of sexy Halloween outfits, passing out and getting candies and crazy parties. This year, step back and look at what else is going on at the same time that Halloween was going on and the couple of days afterwards and you might be pleasantly surprised.

On Saturday November 2 is a special event at the Warehouse. An All Souls Day or Day of the Dead celebration will take place where those that have passed on honored, candles lit and people will talk about what made a person so special and the symbolic tradition of family enjoying food. You will be able to try a traditional drink from Central America, Day of the Dead Bread from Mexico and a cookie from Italy called, Bones of the Dead.
