Day of the Dead (Part 1)

Dia de los Muertos
brings back such enticing memories. . .

The stalls in the markets

filled with little muertos figures

each with their own personality.

Marigolds -- by the armfuls and bucketsful. . . 

Colorful flags

Candlelit altars

the sounds of guitars

spooky senoritas

and lots of scary boys and ghouls.

As a kid I loved Halloween and as a mother with children, I loved it. Now that my children are grown, I don't really acknowledge Halloween. We never really got that many trick or treaters in our part of the neighborhood and now that I've moved out here to the country we get none. Now I really love Dia de los Muertos, the whole idea of it and I've always loved Mexico and it's culture.

Hello Meri.
These are outstanding photographs and I thank you for sharing them. I love the marigolds and the skeleton.
This Day of the Dead celebration has been a joyful one for me mostly because of the bonding with those who have participated. Grieving for lost loved ones has always been such a lonesome empty thing ~ I now feel happiness knowing so many others have felt that immense grief and now joyfully honor and celebrate the lives of those gone before us.

Delightful. Such wonderful photos and memories. What a journey we have all been on and it has been very special to experience Dia de los Muertos with those of you who have actually celebrated it in Mexico.
wonderful...looking forward the subsequent parts and enjoyed the halloween prelude!
