Archive for the ‘Day of the Dead’ Category
As I understand it, the Mexican Day of the Dead, is a holiday that lets people visit with their deceased relatives and it has a sense of humor about it. People bring their dead relatives their favorite food & drink. They are depicted doing many fun things like enjoying music and weddings. Because of it’s proximity to Mexico, Old Town San Diego celebrates the Day of the Dead every year in many of its’ shops & public squares.

After closing the sale of my parents home in Oceanside, unfortunately, my Dad fell down and ended up in the La Jolla VA hospital at the escrow office. A beautiful sweet woman in the parking lot saw it happen, helped me lift him up and gave him some bandages. She really reaffirmed my faith in human nature.
Afterwards, we went to visit him at the hospital. Then, my date & I went to La Jolla shores for dinner. We saw this restaurant called Barbarella that was decorated thoroughly with these scary animated Halloween characters. In fact, it was so scary that my date didn’t want to eat there because of the giant fake spiders, even if they were near a romantic fireplace.
Since my “Day of the Dead” pictures from a few years ago became my most popular blog, I figured that I should share some of these fun early resHalloween images as well. My Dad is feeling better now too.
