As you know Halloween is this weekend :  Sunday, Oct 31st.

The country pumpkin’s Haunted Corn Maze is open Friday, Sat. & Sunday at the corner of Hwy 99w and Co. Rd. 9, if you really want to get scared.

But for those of you into other type of  cultural gatherings :

Nov. 1st:  All Saints Day:  Honoring children and Infants, also known as the : Dia de los Inocentes

Nov. 2nd: Day of the dead: Honoring Adults, also known as the :                     Dia de los Muertos

Since it falls around Halloween, people think its connected to Halloween, it’s not, it’s a time of celebration and eating.  In the Mexican culture, it about remembering friends and family who are no longer with us.

Sugar skulls and marigolds are considered gifts.

But if you really interested we have few book on the Day of the Dead :

All saints,all souls and Halloween:  J  394.264C

Day of the Dead: J 394.264G

Its interest that these  festivities are so close but so different, and you can discover even more about it –  at the Library.
