We’ll continue this month with some photos from Dia de los Muertos, one of my favorite holidays.
This is a photo of children participating in Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead, November 2013. The image is creepy, frightening, sweet, and loving, reflecting the holiday, where people come together to give love to ones who have passed on. Thank you so much!

Dia de los Muertos is about love, gathering families and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. Traditions include building private altars honoring the deceased, using sugar skulls and the favorite foods, beverages, and affects of the departed. Historians trace the origins to indigenous observances 2500-3000 years ago ago as well as to an Aztec festival dedicated to a goddess called Mictecacihuatl.
