The Day of the Dead

Last Sunday Mexicans celebrated The Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos). I confess that until a couple of days ago I knew virtually nothing about that holiday. I would’ve guessed it was the Mexican version of Halloween.

But interestingly (as most of you likely already knew), I learned that actually it’s a day set aside to honor the memories of dead relatives and friends.

I like the idea of dedicating a day to remembrance of the friends and family who have gone on before us.

That seems to me to be a fine reason for a holiday.
