I know that a lot of my friends love to work Day of The Dead into their Halloween festivities- but this day is so wonderful that I’d like to share a little of what it actually celebrates.
I hope that the info here will help you appreciate it for what it is so that you can enjoy it as it was meant to be celebrated and enjoyed.
I am hoping to be able to enjoy this holiday myself this year so hopefully I will have a story or two to share about it.
Please watch this beautifully animated, and heart felt, short film about a little girl who visits the land of the dead, where she learns the true meaning of the Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos.
