I am repurposing for myself, and you can do it too, yet another festivity originating in Mexico. Day of the Dead, also known as All Souls Day, is celebrated on November 2 (unless it is a Sunday). It’s a day to celebrate the dead in light-hearted, good-spirited ways, including by lighting candles and incense, and placing special items on a Day of the Dead alter, such as fresh flowers, favourite foods and fruit, sugar skulls, photos and other mementos of the dead. Another sort of offering is to tell a touching or humorous story about the dead. Leigh and I have done lots of that in Just Push Play On Midlife. By including stories about parents and grandparents, we are keeping our family histories alive. Today, I will tell my son a funny story about his great grandpa, who lives on in both of us. Problem is, there are so many of those stories, it’s difficult to choose one. I hope you also have the good fortune to have many stories from which to choose. Feliz Dia de Los Muertos!
