Today is the Dia... Dia de los Muertos.

In a previous post, I gave a layman's explanation of Day of the Dead, so I won't go into it now, but today, November 1, with a candy hangover still ringing in my head, I want to send out a reminder about today's activities...  

Face painters!  One of my favorite things today!  Staffers get painted and then customers, too, can get theirs done!!  

it's a fun day and one where we remember, above all, the people who have passed before us!!  Check out, or add to the images and memories on the mantle on the fireplace!
