#306 / Strawberry Grandmother / Día De Muertos


Wikipedia tells us this about the "Day of the Dead," a holiday celebrated on October 31st, November 1st, and ending on November 2nd: 

The Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere. The multi-day holiday involves family and friends gathering to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, helping to support their spiritual journey. In Mexican culture, death is viewed as a natural part of the human cycle. Mexicans view it not as a day of sadness but as a day of celebration because their loved ones awaken and celebrate with them. In 2008, the tradition was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

I thought the image above was pretty "celebratory," and that it would be an appropriate homage to a Day of the Dead celebration on this blog. 

Life, you know, can be very sweet. 

Like strawberries. 

Like that grandmother whom you love, whom you will never forget!

Let's take time to celebrate!

Let's dance!
