DAY OF THE DEAD
Dia de Muertos is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures. It focuses on gathering of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family who have died. Building altars consisting of gifts to there loved ones including pictures of the deceased, sugar skulls, marigolds. Also leaving possessions of the deceased. I left jewelry that my Mother had given me and that I got when she died. The celebration takes place on October 31, November 1 and November 2.
Today I will be celebrating all my family and friends that have gone before me.
My Sisters and Nieces will be here to Celebrate and honor our loved ones.
It is also my Fathers 86th Birthday. Halloween Baby.
So glad he is still around.
Also the little kiddo's will be going Trick or Treating in the Neighborhood.
Lots of Candy.
Lots of Love.
Oh what a day we have in store for us.
I painted these skulls from left over skulls from Halloween. You can get them really cheap at AC Moore or Michaels after the holiday.
Just make sure you gesso them really good before you paint them.
I honor them all and I miss them.
They will be in my heart forever.
True Love Never dies.
Take some time out in the next few days and honor the ones you loved and lost. And honor the ones you love.
Both are so precious.
