Happy October Everyone,
I love Fall, the change of seasons and I love Halloween! The dressing up, the decorating, and all the candy of course…. Even though the kids are out of the house I still dress up and love it! We are in a new neighborhood now and not too many kids – wondering how many trick or treaters Im gonna get this year. I also decided to give out mini cokes along with one specific candy bar – maybe snickers…. YUM! A neighbor did that one year and it was great! I mean you get thirsty walking and eating all that chocolate right? My costume this year is going to be celebrating the “day of the dead” I found this sugar skull tutorial and love this idea for me this year. Kindda scary and pretty at the same time. Gosh I love Youtube! I learn so much – how to use my camera – how to change batteries in my Bose headphones – what to make for dinner…..on & on
It also got me researching the Spanish Holiday Day of the Dead. At first glance, the Mexican custom of the Día de Muertos — the Day of the Dead — may sound much like the U.S. custom of Halloween. After all, the celebration traditionally starts at midnight the night of Oct. 31, and the festivities are abundant in images related to death.
