Behind the abundant skulls and skeletons of Día de los Muertos is a notion that’s more tender than macabre. This Mexican holiday is a time to remember and honor loved ones who have died, through special foods, offerings, artwork and other traditions. Families can experience this centuries-old celebration at the following events (many King County Library branches also are offering related events and activities):
