Celebrating Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) at Woodlawn Cemetery in Santa Monica. Wonderful stories and performances shared. The City of Santa Monica did an especially nice job of balancing the sacred with the secular. Families with altars dedicated to loved ones who have passed shared their culture and personal stories with visitors. It was a heartfelt reminder to honor your ancestors and those who came before you.
So many holidays converge at this time - Samhain, Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, Dia de los Santos... it's a good time to reflect as the season changes.
