Dia de los Muertos Blog Hop/ A Celebration of life and a GIVEAWAY!!!



Hello friends!! My BFF and I will be hosting our very own BLOG HOP!!! and we have some very talented ladies joining in the fun too. For those of you that just love Halloween time.... and well, just need more of it... what a better way to continue celebrating this time!!

Here is a little history about what Day of the Dead is:



Day of the Dead (SpanishDía de los Muertos) is a holiday celebrated in Mexico and other countries. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. The celebration occurs on November 2. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts. The Day of the Dead is a time of celebration. (www.wikipedia.org) 


(keep reading for GIVEAWAY)



Here are some pictures about the Day of the Dead. You can see how colorful and festive it is. 

I see it as a celebration of life, a beautiful life that our loved ones had when they were here.
