Dia de los Muertos 2012

Last year I introduced my favorite holiday, Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). I was living in Hawaii, where the holiday isn’t celebrated, so I shared pictures and stories of my relatives online here. This year I was able to go to several celebrations, both in my hometown and the closest big city, San Antonio. There was face painting, dancing, music, sugar skulls, alters, processions, and beautiful artwork. I was so happy to be able to take part in this special day.


  1. I love all your photos from the week of all the Dia de los Muertos festivities. It’s on my bucket list to go to a celebration, one day. My parents sent me a picture of their party from Mexico and my mom went all out with her face-painting! I got a bit jealous 😉
    Eva is looking like a little person, more and more! I love the picture of her being tossed in the air. She looks so happy!
    So any news on where you and D will be headed???? Can’t wait to hear!

  2. Wow Erica these pictures are beautiful! I would love to go to a huge celebration like this someday. The alters I think are my favorite out of everything you captured. The love and thought that was put into those displays really shows. I love all the color and costumes. Actually I love it all! Haha so beautiful!
