stuffs : things :: day of the dead

i always loved celebrating dia de los muertos in spanish classes...and i like the holiday and what it stands for much more than halloween (though i had a pretty awesome cave woman costume this year!). I like that day of the dead is about remembrance of loved ones who have passed and that there is a greater sense of celebration and humor surrounding death. It's fun to think about making food and shrines as a way to entice the dead to come back and visit. (it also kinda freaks me out because ghosts give me the jibblies). anyhoo, Happy Dia de los Muertos! enjoy this sweet little flower and skull pin!
