It is no surprise to me that Halloween and the Day of the Dead are one day apart.   This is the seasonal time when things shift, plants die, seasons change.  I’m going to keep this simple.  Here are a few ideas for how you could celebrate this unique time:

1.  Go for a walk in the cemetery:  go alone or go with your family.  Look at the tombstones.  Pay your respects to the dead.  Enjoy their company, whoever they were.

2. Jump in the leaves:  Rake them into a big pile.  Listen to the crunchy sound they make.  Jump in them.  Kick them.  Throw them.

3. Take a look at pictures of your elders or grandparents:  Look through old photos or albums.  Share stories.  Write down names that you remember and how they were related to each other.  The family tree will be easier for future generations to reconstruct that way.

4.  Look at the night sky: Put on a warm jacket, or better yet grab a sleeping bag and go look at the night sky.  Do it in the city or in the country.  See clouds or see stars.  See whatever you see.  Take 10 minutes away from your warm indoors and feel the cool evening of the Fall.

  1. I do agree with all the ideas you have presented in your post.
    They’re really convincing and can certainly work.
    Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for newbies. Could you please extend them a little from subsequent time?
    Thanks for the post.

    Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you
    download it from somewhere? A design like yours with
    a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine.
    Please let me know where you got your design. Thank you
