Los Dias de Los Muertos, 2012

Today and tomorrow are the Days of the Dead. The time when the spirits can cross back over into our world. We celebrate the lives of the ones we have loved and lost over the years by sharing food, stories, laughter and tears with our family and friends.

Here is a photo of the Alter de Muertos, the Altar of the dead, at our home this year.



And, a Haiku for the occasion:




Remembering souls

Los Dias de Los Muertos

Those we love and lost


Much Peace to all

A bittersweet occasion - and surely a healing one.

Recuerdo bien mi amigo.

Honoring and remembering those who we have lost in this healing way. So good for all the Souls involved.
Love and peace to you and yours, Man.

Looks like a wonderful altar, full of great stories and memories. I have never hadthis type of celebration! Hope it was/is well!

I'm always amazed at the colourfulness. I don't think I should be, huh?!

I do hope the doings were filled with great sharing and lots of love.

In Europe, we have a similar day of honouring the death but it isn't as colourful or 'big' - we are a introvert people I guess. However, it's a good thing to remember our loved ones and honour them. They won't be forgotten.
