Day of the Dead Giveaway

My entry in the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by The Cat on My Head!

Meows from Mudpie!

Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and by people of Mexican ancestry. The multi-day holiday (October 31-November 2) focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars, honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts.

Colorful Day of the Dead statues can be easily found alongside Halloween decorations on store shelves, and earlier this fall Mommy excitedly came home with a festive cat statue to add to our holiday decor! When I gently reminded her what a pawsome giveaway this would make, she went back to the store and bought another one!


To enter, simply fill out the Rafflecopter below! This giveaway is open to everyone worldwide; deadline is midnight Eastern Time, November 6. Good luck!

  15. Oh, this statue is too cute! I love all Halloween decorations, but those involving kitties and the Day of the Dead are some of my faves. And you are so kind to share this with us!

    This Halloween will be spent like we always do (and love!), and that is watching spooky movies while waiting for kiddies to show up at our doorstep. Luckily, the TV and furbaby cuddle station (aka, couch) is a decent distance from the front door, and there are baby gates set up that this mom shuts behind her when trick-or-treaters show up. The baby gate is visible from the front door, though, so the candy-seeking kiddos usually have a few sets of eyes leering at them. I figure that just adds to the spooktacular festivities. Happy Sunday, Mudpie and Melissa! And happy (almost) Halloween!

  25. I'm not usually home on Halloween (my daughter and I attend our favorite anime convention - Youmocon in Detroit and it's usually held on Halloween weekend). With Halloween falling on a Monday this year, though, we'll be home. We'll be passing out candy to the trick-or-treaters, but otherwise have no plans. We have bought a couple of costumes for our dogs and cats. My kitten, Kotoha (who I found on July 6th when she was just two weeks old and had to be bottle fed) had spay surgery this past Monday so I have avoided putting any costumes on her. She should be okay to dress up on Monday. We don't dress my older cat, Moko, but my daughter's boy, Arata, has several new costumes, including a Pikachu one.

  34. I think I saw a spooky Mudpie...but completely my color ;) We don't celebrate Helloween here in the Netherlands, although it is starting to get more famous this year, so probably we will celebrate it next year too, but for now, we will remember all our family and (furry)furriends that have left us to the other side too soon. The stature is very beautiful :) Pawkisses for a Happy Halloween :) <3

  35. Our boys are planning on staying warm and safe within our house. They don't care for those noise kids who hammer on the door and yell trick or treat. Romeo and Ralphie also know Mommy and Daddy are happier when they don't have to worry about them getting outside and lost.

  36. I adore that day of the dead kitty. What a fabulous giveaway! No special plans for the kitties this year, aside from extra snuggles, of course!

  45. Wow Mudpie, are you behind that mask somewheres?

    All was furry quiet around here and in most neighborhoods - Lots of folks turn their lights off. seems like most folks are taking their kids to big events like our Zoo and churches and city sponsored events and our malls vs door to door.

  46. Nope, we are going to stay indoors to avoid any nasty tricks!
