Banners, pictures, candy, candles, small Day of the Dead trinkets.
and Pan de Muerto (Bread of the Dead).
Friends from our block admired our altar, used to scary Halloween decorations...this was very different for most.
Today, after school, we took a trip to Olvera street.
Admired all the beautiful decorations.
Enjoyed taquitos with beans.
Ate yummy Mexican candy.
Learned a whole lot about a most colorful culture.
And fell in love with all the beautiful faces.
Wishing all of your loved ones who have past away lots and lots of peace....
Happy Dia de los Muertos!
