El Dia De los Muertos or All Souls Day takes place on November 2nd. I have also heard it called The Day of the Dead.
This is an occasion marked by festive celebrations to honor the dead. Cemeteries are cleaned and decorated, special food and candies are cooked.
To some of us it may seem creepy or odd but when you think about it, it's really sweet and lovely.
All the photos in this post were taken when I was in San Diego Old Town with Pat and Cori.
I think this year I may celebrate this holiday and pay tribute to my own friends and family that have passed away.
How about you? Have you ever celebrated this holiday before? Did you even know about it before you read this post?
