First Name Basis Podcast


Oct 25, 2019

In this episode we interview Catrina Gandara, a fellow podcaster who was born and raised in Mexico. Catrina grew up celebrating Dia De Los Muertos and has carried on those traditions with her family, as well as created new, meaningful traditions!

Catrina teaches us: 

  • the history of Dia De Los Muertos
  • the difference between Dia De Los Muertos and Halloween 
  • using Dia De Los Muertos to teach your children about death 
  • creating opportunities for family history work during Dia De Los Muertos 
  • how to appreciate but not appropriate during Dia De Los Muertos

Catrina has developed an AMAZING guide for families who are just getting started with learning about and celebrating Dia De Los Muertos. Find it here. The guide includes recipes, books, movies, and more!

We also chatted about Sol Book Box, an awesome resource that parents can use to teach their children more about Hispanic heritage/ Latinx culture.
