  1. Día de los Muertos has become a huge trend in recent years not just in other countries like the US and Canada, but I’ve also seen it transcend to parts of Europe. Must be the colorful and vibrant tradition which gives an excuse to party! Hope you have a wonderful Halloween (and Día de los Muertos)!

    1. Thank you, you too! Great comment, Rebecca. Thanks for sharing your experience from your travels. I think this new syncretism of celebrations may bring Halloween back to its roots of All Hallow’s Eve. Día de los Muertos is a commemorative time of year for me, looking back at those who have passed. I make gravestones from paperboard to decorate our yard and commemorate the souls who were doing important work for the planet and their fellow humans. I’ll present my list my Tuesday post.
