I like the holiday Day of the Dead and not just for the skeletons (even though they are really cool). It's not that I like the religious side of the holiday, but the idea of taking a day to remember Family and Friends who have died. It's not sad and somber but 3 days of celebration and fun decorations.
I like the idea of honoring, remembering, and celebrating the lives of loved ones that are gone. There is so much love, respect and thoughtfulness put into the celebration. I stole this comment from a friend who posted on my FB, she said it so much better than I did.
My figures are on display in my buffet hutch. Next year I need to find a new place because I didn't have enough room for all my skeleton's and photos of my grandparents and father-in-law.
