Day of the dead
What the heck is Day of the dead anyway?
It is a celebration of the lives of those that have come before us and an acknowledgement that death is a part of life. It is a joyous and fun occasion, not one of sadness. Home altars are decorated and festooned with those that have passed favorite things, cemeteries are cleaned and decorated, special foods and drinks are prepared and we the living enjoy all that life has to offer while thinking sweet thoughts about those that are no longer with us.
