Dia De Los Muertos

Speaking of spooky traditions, did you know that they celebrate Halloween and Día de los Muertos here?  Día de los Muertos is a lot bigger but we did find some Trick or Treaters! Ha! Ha, but really, coolest tradition ever!! 

They build these altars for their ancestors that have died and put their favorite foods and pictures of them. The huge tourist center in our area was filled with them!  Loved that this week! I was thinking of making my own tradition with it. Not the whole food and spirits thing but on November 2nd, putting up pictures of our ancestors and talking about what they were like and their hobbies and making like a family history learning thing out of it.  I love how they are so focused on families and their heritage here! Please enjoy all of these AWESOME altars.
