Halloween was such a blast! Truly my favorite holiday. The trick or treaters who come each year...about 400 usually...are delightful. So cute in their costumes and honestly, I get more from them than they get from me. Just a joyful group. Love 'em!
I am so glad The Grand Ones had a terrific first Halloween, too, and had their first bites of Witches Brew Stew. One little sweetie dressed as her favorite book character, Nicholas the bunny, and the other as a little blue monster. Both had smiles as big as The Great Pumpkin!
Today the fun continues with The Day of the Dead...a fabulous celebration with roots in Mexico. I just love it and our house this year, inside and out, was a combination of Halloween and Day of the Dead decorations, costumes and food.
And so, imagine my sheer glee when I got these as a gift last night...
Muchas gracias a ti, Victoria, por las calaveritas de azucar y el papel picado!!! Que preciosos!!
Take some time today to discover (if you haven't already!) the traditions of colors, paper flowers and banners, dogs and butterflies, candles, sugar skulls and foods of The Day of the Dead. Have a great one!
Here is a fab photo from NPR and they did a great piece on this joyous holiday. Just for fun, google it.
Meanwhile, I've got to go touch up my makeup, tuck in a few colorful flowers and grab a butterfly. Halloween is so yesterday!!
