¡Feliz Día De Los Muertos!

Our Mexican friends will have a few more days of celebration and reflection this week while celebrating Día De Los Muertos, when prayers for dead loved ones are revered, while celebrating life with feast and drink.  November 1 is All Saints' Day, followed by All Souls' Day on November 2, celebrations with deep Roman Catholic roots.  Sugar skulls, popular in pop culture today, were edible treats left at the graves of dead loved ones, along with favourite beverages and foods.  Join in the tradition and take a moment to reflect on a positive memory of someone who's passed, and how they've enriched your lives today ... and come check out this Treasury on Etsy for fun 'sugar skull' finds!
