Feliz de Dia de Los Muertos!



Happy November 2nd, or Dia de Los Muertos! In Mexico, November 2nd is traditionally the Day of the Dead; residents celebrate those who have passed on over the last year, having picnics and telling stories near the graves of loved ones. How cool is that? We tend to see death as a somber occasion, but Dia de Los Muertos is full of color and life, decorated with skulls in technicolor brightness. I know when I go, I want a big, colorful party with a Second Line band and happy reminiscing from my friends. Dia de Los Muertos is definitely for me;)
