Take a Break: Poems/Dia de los muertos

With Halloween on Friday and Dia de los muertos (Day of the Dead) on Saturday, here are two “take a breaks” for this week.

As a child, Halloween was a wonderful time of story telling and poetry, read or told by my Aunt Margaret and my mother. So in memory of them, I’m including several of my favorites

This coming Saturday, November 1, is Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). A few links to help explain what it is, how to celebrate and the all important, applying sugar skull make up.

• BBC Documentary on Dia de los Muertos: Excellent video 

• How to apply sugar skull make up: Note that many people just do half their face in this makeup.
