Valeria’s Ofrenda

My ofrenda honors my great-grandfather Evaristo, great-grandmother Juanita and uncle Rafael Flores. I choose them because to my family they are very important people.  When I ask my family questions about them, they say very beautiful things.  Even though I didn’t know them, they are still important people in my life and I always have them in my heart and in my mind.  That is why I choose to represent these people in my ofrenda. All of the elements, flowers and colors that I used are things that represent them. For example, my great-grandpa liked to fish, so I used things that represented that in the ofrenda. My uncle liked to smoke and drink, so I also included cigarettes and tequila. My great grandmother liked to cook, so I included different kinds of foods.

Mi ofrenda se la estoy dedicando a mi bisabuelito Evaristo, bisabuelita Juanita y a mi tío Rafael Flores. Les escogí porque son importantes para mi familia. Cuando le pregunto sobre aquellas personas, mi familia siempre habla hermosuras de ellos. Aunque yo no los conocí, todavía son personas muy importantes en mi vida, y siempre los tengo en mi corazón y mente. Por eso escogí hacer representación de estas personas en mi ofrenda. Todos los elementos, flores, y colores que usé son cosas que los representan. Por ejemplo, a mi bisabuelito le gustaba pescar, entonces puse esas cosas en mi ofrenda. A mi tío le gustaba fumar y tomar, entonces incluí tequila y cigarros. A mi bisabuela le gustaba cocinar, entonces puse distintos tipos de comida.
