A Secular Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos event is a celebration of life. Nontheist Hispanics view the Day of the Dead as a perfect way to remember the legacy of dead loved ones in a way that does not require prayer, church, or any religious dogma. To nontheists, our legacies are our afterlife.
Many nontheist Hispanics want to continue traditions and cultural rituals, but in a secular way. The Secular Day of the Dead event will include many redesigned Hispanic traditions and rituals that celebrate our one and only life, legacies and cultural heritage.
More and more people are abandoning their religious upbringing, but still want to celebrate the beauty of their culture. This is why a Secular Day of the Dead was created.
The 2020 Secular Day of the Dead is co-sponsored by American Atheists, The Center of Inquiry, The Freedom From Religion Foundation, The Freethought Society, Hispanic American Freethinkers.
