One of my favorite things about Autumn are the treasured traditions and holidays that bring family and friends together. Although Día de los Muertos is not a holiday I have ever celebrated, in recent years (thanks to Coco) I have enjoyed learning more about it. There is something about “saying hello” to and celebrating the life of loved ones that have passed away that brings a smile to my heart. To me the Day of the Dead seems like a way to connect again with loved ones who are no longer with us during this special season. And I will take any opportunity I can to do that. Even though this isn’t my tradition or annual celebration, I am taking this time during this holiday to remember and celebrate my loved ones who are no longer here.
