"Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you there."~ Isla Paschal Richardson
"Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos as its known in Spanish, is a Mexican holiday celebrated on November 1 and 2. On these days, families and friends gather to remember their deceased loved ones and ancestors. They build shrines to honor the dead, and include many images or sculptures of skulls and skeletons." It is a Joyous celebration.
