Friday Love 11.01.13 - Dia de los Muertos

Friday Love 11.01.13 - Dia de los Muertos

Feliz Dia de los Muertos everyone!
I collected some of my favorite Dia de los Muertos
goodies to share with you.

Dia de los Muertos is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world including other hispanic countries. Friends and family gather to pray and remember friends and family who have died. This holiday takes place November 1st and 2nd, some folks start October 31st. People build altares (altars) and honor the dead with sugar skulls, marigolds, favorite foods & drinks, and candles. It's a magical holiday where we can all get together and celebrate the dead.

Check out these pictures from buzzfeed. I was lucky to attend Noche de Altares in Santa Ana, CA in 2011, see pictures here (I share them every year LOL).

Will you be celebrating today and tomorrow?! Do you have an altar set up for friends and family?!

Have a great weekend!

..till next time ;]
