Day of Dead Promotion

While everyone else is gearing up for Halloween, I’m getting ready for another birthday. And the Day of the Dead! Some people are born on Christmas. I was born on the Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos as it is known in Mexico (or maybe Days of the Dead as it occurs on November 1 and 2). Kind of ironic, huh? But it’s not as gloomy as it may seem. In fact, in Mexico the Day of the Dead is a time to celebrate with friends and family. In honor of those who have passed, private altars are constructed, homes are decorated, candles are lit, and favorite foods and drinks are made so that the dead souls can return to their former homes to eat and dance. And it’s only been going on for about 3000 years.

    What better time to have a birthday than when the whole country is celebrating and having festivals and parades? Sounds like a blast. 🙂
