Day 305 : dead


Sandy: Dia de los Muertos, Day of the Dead, is a holiday celebrated in many cultures around the world including Mexico where it is a public holiday. Family and friends gather to remember family members and friends who have died. The celebration takes place in connection with the Christian triduum – All Hallows’ Eve, All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day over October 31st, November 1st and November 2nd. Visiting graves with gifts of sugar skulls, marigolds, altars, favorite foods of the deceased is part of the tradition. I don’t know how it started but one of my daughters has a small collection of skull headed figures, perhaps it was the pageantry of the holiday that attracted her. The groom and bride belongs to me.

Sandy’s year long journey – going from being a right-hander to left-hander, and Kelly’s parallel trip as a left-hander doing things as a right-hander.
