Celebrating Dias de los Muertos in the shop today with altar making and a chile relleno lunch! Day of the Dead is a very special holiday in Mexico and increasing here in the U.S. Altars, filled with marigold and cockscomb flowers, dead bread (a special holiday bread decorated with dough sculptures of saints) candles and photos of loved ones are combined with food and other items loved by relatives and friends that have passed. Families spend the day at the cemetery cleaning the graves, planting flowers and remembering the loved ones that have died. What a beautiful and loving idea!!
