"¡Bienvenidos a las monarcas!"
Vol. 13, Issue 11, November 2019
This month's November cover of Latino Lubbock Magazine features a Monarch butterfly artistically cut in papel picado. Every autumn a truly incredible natural event takes place. A Monarch butterfly born in Canada will fly more than 3,000 miles to Mexico, across land it has never seen. Its journey is filled with peril, many never make it and those that do will never return. It takes three more generations to make the journey back the following spring. Monarch butterflies play a role in Día de los Muertos because they are believed to hold the spirits of the departed. This belief stems from the fact that the first monarchs arrive in Mexico for the winter each fall on Nov. 1, which coincides with Día de los Muertos.
In the November issue, we share info about Día de los Muertos events, and some of the celebrations occurring including our event that will be held Sunday, Nov. 3rd (Click for details). We offer stories about Veterans as well as info about the Veteran's Day Parade and other activities, info about diabetes, and so much more!
