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