Alll 2020 MHHS Public Events Canceled

On Monday, 4/27, the MHHS Board of Directors approved canceling all MHHS public events for 2020. Our primary concern is for the health and safety of our members and event attendees, many of whom fall in high risk categories. At present, there is a great deal of uncertainty about social guidelines and how they will impact our lives. As we listen to the science and facts surrounding COVID-19, it looks to be many months before we will be able to gather in large groups -- projections are next year. As the weeks and months go by, it does not make sense to keep committees working in suspense about what will happen only to find that events may not be permitted when scheduled. Until we can once again open our doors to the community, we will continue our mission of preserving and sharing the history of Morgan Hill by finding new and interesting ways to keep us all engaged. In the meantime, we invite you to visit our new Blog which will be updated regularly with current and historical information pertaining to our community. You can also view our "Stories from the Past" documentary film series. And don't forget to watch for our Constant Contact emails, our quarterly newsletters, and follow us on Facebook. Thank you for your support!

Celebrating Día De Los Muertos

Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is celebrated on November 1st and 2nd annually. This beloved cultural tradition originated centuries ago among indigenous communities in Mexico and is now celebrated far and wide. It is a time to remember and honor departed loved ones and ancestors, and to recognize that the dead are not gone but continue on in a different plane. By sharing stories and memories, present generations can keep the spirits of the departed alive.

According to Mary J. Andrade, a journalist and photographer who began researching this tradition in Mexico in 1987, “Day of the Dead rituals in homes share two predominant features, the making of an altar and the offering of gifts. The altar is considered a sacred place where the living show their love for the dead and co-exist with them for a time in memory. Belongings, flowers and food are all placed around and on the altar, and many members of the community participate in the ceremony.” Andrade has won acclaim for her books including Day of the Dead, A Passion for Life.
