|An example of an alter celebrating Day of the Dead|
Our experience with Day of the Dead started with Marcus' Spanish school project. He researched and created a beautiful altar. He included photos of his dad's parents and my dad, sugar skulls, figurines and flowers. (sorry, no photos) I cried when I saw it!
I think it's important to celebrate our family members who have passed with our children. Marcus was born after my husband's parents and my father died. My husband and I broke out family photo albums and shared our memories with Marcus.
