Day of the dead journalJournaling on Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead):

Día de los Muertos or Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday that is traditionally celebrated on the 1st & 2nd of November. It is a joyful holiday where family and friends gather to pay respects and to remember friends and family members who have died. 

Create a loving and special memory a deceased family member or friend in your journal by creating an alter, known as an Ofrenda. Decorate your Ofrenda using sugar skulls, marigold flowers, and foods and beverages loved by the friend or family member. You could also include some of their favourite things and special memories about them. Incorporate this beautiful tradition in your journal as a way of remembering special people in your life that have passed.
