Day of the Dead

On the Day of the Dead, the boundaries between life and death begin to blur. Men, women and children of all ages honor and celebrate their loved ones who have passed away, participating joyously in a festival that has roots nearly 4000 years old.

Visit this website for more info or just Google Day of the Dead and you can search around for more info and pictures!

This is a very interesting holiday and this picture depicts wonderfully how it is celebrated.  The person in the picture is dead and the table and surroundings are full of their favorite foods, etc!  This is a tribute and honor to this deceased person!

Traditionally skeletons are used as decoration for the Day of the Dead and there are some very intricate and beautiful creations displayed yearly!  Here are some that I found online as well as some turned in by club members!!  If you haven't decorated yours yet, do it so we can all see it!!!
