Dia de los Muertos by ALRadeck Dia de los Muertos by ALRadeck
Commission for houshou on FA of his death-squirrel dressed/ painted up in some Dia de los muertos-tastic facepaint.

My spanish teacher in 7th grade first introduced us to this holiday, which if you're unaware what it is, it's a day of honoring your deceased friends and family with food and celebration of their lives. I love the idea of it, much more then the solemn, depressing stretches of mourning in relation to one event, celebrating the lives they lead is a beautiful way to remember someone. The thing I remembered most is that you make food for the decease relative, and when it goes stale, that means the ghost ate it. I thought that was pretty badass as a kid.

I guess there's a little bit of context to this since I found out about an hour ago that my uncle died. (nothing sudden, and nothing unexpected, twas a long while of suffering, and considering he had downs syndrome, he lived a hell of a long life) But yes. It's a fantastic holiday, and I wish the general populace celebrated it. It's on Nov. 1st and 2nd.
