Feliz Dia de los Muertos!


This is a detail from a fresco completed by Diego Rivera in 1924.   We don't talk much about Mexican history in this forum, but this is one of the most revered days on the Mexican calendar.  Vaya con Dios!

  1. You could always read Malcolm Lowry's "Under the Volcano." What a book, and a pretty good film as well. At least I seem to think the film was pretty good.

  2. They have a huge Day of the Dead parade here each year -- I've never attended, but from the photos in the paper the next day it's quite the scene.
