Episode 74 | When the Saints
What is it about our ancestors? Why do we care? When it comes to celebrations honoring those who have died, we often think of things like The Day of the Dead from Mexico, or maybe All Saint’s Day. These global observances and celebrations come from all different faith backgrounds: Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, as well as tribal traditions and religions. No matter where you are from, there is just something about celebrating and remembering those who came before us, and make us who we are today.
