Today is Day of the Dead. Personally I am more a fan of this holiday than Halloween. It is a day to remember those that have passed on with altars and offerings such as sugar skulls and favorite foods of your loved one. I like the idea that you would honor the memory of people that you loved and take time to remember them. In remembering them they live on. I also like the figures of skeletons dressed up in all different outfits from traditional all the way to silly. Unfortunately for some reason last weekend was the celebration here, but I can still see all the decorations around town.
