Frivolous Friday: CRAZY color and amazingness of Dia de los Muertos at Old Town

Frivolous:  carefree and not serious, lighthearted, giddy
 

Yep, this happened #1:

Got in the spirit of Dia de los Muertos yesterday at Old Town!  How fun is that?

We went to soak in the atmosphere and photograph all the amazing and colorful decorations….

And decided to be a little silly along the way…..

Yep, this happened #2:

You might already know that Dia de los Muertos is celebrated on November 1st and 2nd (All Soul’s & All Saint’s Day) in honor of deceased loved ones.

It’s believed that the gates of heaven are opened at midnight on October 31 and the spirits of all deceased children (angelitos) are allowed to reunite with their families for 24 hours.

On November 2, the spirits of the adults come down to enjoy the festivities that are prepared for them.

Dressing as a skeleton makes it friendlier for spirits.    Old Town has lots of fun activities, shrines and decor to help make the holiday come to life….pardon the pun.

Yep, this happened #3:
If you are in Old Town you must.  Must.  Stay for lunch.   So I did.   I  couldn’t resist the baja fish taco plate.
And half a basket of warm tortilla chips.  And salsa.  And two diet cokes cuz being a skeleton made me parched.
What can I say:  I’m Feeling Blessed!
