In this segment, Melba Marin-Velasquez converses with Aurora Garcia-Saqui about the importance of Finados in Belize.
Finados is a religious commemoration and time of remembrance for the souls of those who have passed on. In many Belizean communities, it is marked with prayers and the preparation of altars dedicated to loved ones who have passed on. The altars are set with photographs, candles, flowers, and the favorite food of the deceased loved one.
