El Dia de los Muertos
Today in Torreon I could see people in family groups getting ready for their holiday. There were people at the grocery stores buying the favorite foods of their departed family members. I saw very elaborately dressed groups of Tarahumara Indian women walking together for the celebration. This evening there are children's parties to celebrate the "angelitos" or the little angels who left this world too soon. There are tiny Pan de Muerto sold to celebrate their tiny spirits. The view of death in Mexico with this celebration much different from the macabre view of skeletons & skulls during Halloween in the States.
