Fiesta De Los Muertos

and getting out of jail.

November 1st is the day granted to those long dead to spend some time with us, and us them.

It is the annual opportunity we have to eat and drink… share… swap stories and tell them about our plans for the next year.

So we collect those around us, visit the graves and monuments where those who’ve past-on rest, then throw a party the envy of all.

All Saints, all Day.

It’s a fiesta, a tradition and a ritual.

Just make sure they’re your relatives… you’re Catholic…  and you live somewhere they speak Spanish… a lot.

None of the above apply to me.

Got out last night.
