Guest Blog by WHC Riler – Dia de los Muertos

A guest blog by WHC Riler  – Dia de los Muertos, originally blogged [HERE]

Halloween is almost upon us and in America that means it’s time for scary movies and trick or treating! Sometimes though we forget that other cultures celebrate this time of year in entirely different ways. Take the Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. It is a celebration of life, a festival during which families decorate the graves of lost loved ones in remembrance and create colorful “altars” with photos and favorite foods of the deceased. At night, the line between the worlds of the living and of the dead blur and allow the ancestor’s souls a short visit to their families. The ultimate symbol of blending these two worlds is in the festive costumes depicting skeletons engaging in everyday activities. I found a perfect FREEBIE outfit for my Dia de los Muertos celebration at BOTANICA by completing their maze hunt. Explore the maze, collect all the luminaries, and trade them in for your choice of prize, including the male or female Day of the Dead costumes, complete with skull facial tattoos. They’re colorful, perfect for the season, completely FREE, and fun to pick up! No group space needed! Just grab a friend and head to BOTANICA!.—–WHC Riler
