For Dia de los Muertos I go to a expositon in C.d Juarez Mexico. Is a altar expositon. For Halloween I go to parties or to the movies with friends or family. I used to go trick-or-treating, but not any more.
For Halloweeen I usually go with my family and have fun, we spend quality time; either trick or treating, or doing any other bonding activity. As for Dia de Los Muertos, I never have celebrated it but I know and have heard of many ways to. This year I would like to remember, celebrate, honor, and recognize my grandfather, who I miss very much for Dia de los Muertos. Lo extrano y amo, "apa!"
I don't remember how to celebrate Dia de los Muertos, but have before. I think that this year I will just to honor my Gandpa Papa Vol. I just love holloween because we go trick or treating and or go to parties. we have crazy but fun parties.This year im going to be a fairy. i hope everyone else has as much fun as i do and even more. lol
If anyone is in Austin this Saturday, Latinitas is building an altar for Dia de los Muertos at the Mexican American Cultural Center. We'll be there from 3 p.m.-5:30 p.m. We need some help, so please message me if you're interested.
There is a local dia de los muertos event here in town. It is really nice. You walk into the room and you are surrounded by the smells of marigolds and food. It is a festive environment; they even have music. It isn't depressing. People go all out and make amazing altars to remember their family members who have died. They also have artists to do artwork for the holiday. I think it is an awesome way to remember those who have passed away. A lot of times people don't like talking about the died, but this is a good way to celebrate their life and focus on the good things. I like to remember my abuelito.
