Preparing For Dia De Los Muertos

I did not celebrate Dia De Los Muertos growing up. Instead it was Halloween, like everyone else. And this year, just like last year, I’ll carve a pumpkin, eat the seeds and hand out candy to the children dressed up as pop icons and ghouls. However, this year, I’m also celebrating Dia De Los Muertos — Day Of The Dead.

As I don’t know much about this holiday other than it’s deeply rooted in Mexican culture and unlike Halloween it’s a celebration of life (as death is a part of life), I’m dedicating October to learn as much as I can and try and get artsy-fartsy.

My past attempts to being crafty for Dia De Los Muertos where mediocre at best, so I’ll attempt to follow the instructions as provided by Crafy Chica.
