So Spooky Season is here! Well I’m late in writing as Spooky Season started October 1st. However lets not focus on the minor details … Ha! Well I’ve been watching scary movies, in the daytime of course, but its been a fun time. Granted I’ve watched movies I’ve seen before but in my defense, I’m easily scared, plus I live alone so there’s that. This year, I don’t have a list, I just scroll through the many many apps I have then I settle on a single or double feature.
Do yall have a tradition when it comes to the holidays? Specifically Halloween? Yes? Then Spill the Beans!
I love the idea of placing your loved ones photos on an alter, ofrenda, along with items that belonged to them as a reminder of their lives. Also as a path for them to be able to return to the living world, when the veil is the thinnest, October 31. I was able to visit San Antonio, which has a large Mexican culture/presence, and experience dia de la muerta festival!
It was such an amazing time. There was beautiful ofrendas, but I didn’t think it was appropriate to take photos as these are someone’s loved ones so I soaked it all up with my heart. However I did capture the ofrenda for Selena and Frida Kahlo. Beautiful is an understatement!
