Altering Altars at the Catrina Museum

The Catrina Museum offers you a chance to enjoy both the museum and Joseph Toone, San Miguel de Allende’s bestselling and award winning author of SMA Secrets: Day of the Dead.
While viewing the museum’s unique take on the impact of skeletons dressed as Victorian era ladies and so much else, you’ll grasp the benefits of building your own altar.  Foreigners tend to focus on how your loved one passed.  By adjusting the ancient indigenous practice of welcoming back loved ones you view the life of the deceased in its entirety and is extremely cathartic. 
Learn why Marigolds and butterflies are all over town, the role of hairless dogs guiding you to heaven, why not to eat the leftovers for meals left for the dead to how to become a fashionable skeleton for the upcoming Catrina parades.   
From six to eight on Friday October 28th join SMA’s Catrina Museum and the author of Amazon’s bestsellingSMA’s Secrets Day of the Dead book for 100 pesos.  The book, and others in the SMA Secrets series, will also be available for purchase at 200 pesos, or 10 USD.  

The Catrina Museum in on San Francisco looking down at the park in front of the St. Francis Temple.  You’ll see Elizabeth Taylor (in a wedding dress) and the skulls of some of her husbands looking down into the garden.

Joseph Toone is the Historical Society’s short-story award winning author of the SMA Secrets book series.  Toone is SMA’s expert and TripAdvisor’s top ranked historical tour guide telling the stories behind what we do in today’s SMA.  Visit HistoryAndCultureWalkingTours.com, also on FaceBook.
