Jose is a staggeringly talented Renaissance man who has been my friend for the last ten years or so. He’s so awesome they gave him his own action figure. I know.
When Isobel gets a bit older I can’t wait to celebrate this holiday with her. I never celebrated this holiday growing up, and although the Day of the Dead is celebrated in parts of Guatemala, Anthony’s family never celebrated it either.
I think it’s the perfect holiday to focus on at this time of year. I love Halloween and I think if we’re going to go to such lengths to celebrate death then we should see to it that we remember and celebrate the people who have died so we’re not just celebrating death itself. The period between Halloween and Thanksgiving are the perfect time to tell family stories about ancestors and relatives.
Plus, who doesn’t love decorating sugar skulls?
Thank you so much for sharing, Jose.
