Triqui, Triqui Halloween

November 4, 2011

I had no idea Halloween was celebrated in Mexico.  There were a thousand kids out visiting the businesses along the malecon (beachfront) for treats!  Lots of zombie ballerinas, zombie babies, zombie princesses, bloody zombies…   Our kids are still recounting and sorting their remaining candies.

Dia de los Muertos

Then today, I wanted to see more of Dia de los Muertos than the leftover treats from Mazie’s class party (little sandwiches with food coloring, cookies and spaghetti).

So I sought out a cemetery decorated to the nines from the last few nights’ Dia de los Muertos celebration.   I’ll try to get a festive photo later this week while the colorful flowers still blanket the graves.  There’s a book we love to read about this wholesome holiday titled Day of the Dead.  The families prepare food, candles, and flowers and hang out at the graves with their loved ones, celebrating with them for the night.

Triqui, Triqui Halloween!  Quiero dulces para mi!

    I love Halloween – it brings a real sense of community to the village
