Dia de los Muertos

We made it to Wal-Mart this evening even though I would rather have stayed snuggled at home with my little yappers.  I found an awesome cup.  It was a totally unexpected find, but I’m glad to have it.

Love my cup!

Bela got lucky and found some Pocky candy and some Panda cookies.

Hanal Pixan

I have started setting up the altar for Hanal Pixan (Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead). I have a picture of my grandparents as the centerpiece, but there are so many other pictures I could add. I also included a picture of Ysabela with La Catrina and a frame with a few photos of the graveyard in Seye. I wanted to include those last two frames to help educate the students.

I have an arch of marigolds, the flower of the dead. The arch allows the spirits to pass through to visit the living. There are several elements to add, of course, so this is a work in progress.

There is an explanation of Dia de los Muertos along with the pictures.  This is part of Ysabela's State Fair exhibit.
