Días de Los Muertos is Spanish for Day of the Dead. It's a Mexican holiday.
It is a day to pray for and remember those who have died.
It takes place on November 1st and 2nd. It is tradition to build private alters
decorated with skulls and flowers and the favorite foods and beverages
of those who have passed.
The photo above shows a little alter that I bought in Arizona some years ago. I
think that Días de Los Muertos is an interesting holiday and the artwork
that comes out of it is really beautiful.
If you're ever in a Halloween store and you see a sign
like this, do NOT go through the door.
It's a trick. I'm quite sure of it.
