Dia De Los Muertos Gatos
Hello! Busby here. Today is Dia De Los Muertos. In English, that means the Day of the Dead. Today we honor and celebrate loved ones who have gone before. For Raymond and I, that means our older sister Toot Suite and our brother Alex. Our Mom bought this tile for them.
We have a Dia De Los Muertos alter that we maintain in our house year round.
It has mementos and photos of our loved ones who have gone before, plus other people who were important to us. (like Elvis, Keith Haring, Walter Peyton and John Lennon!)
We also got this cool quilt square of Our Lady of Guadalupe that hangs over our alter.
For Dia De Los Muertos, it's traditional to decorate your alter with candy skulls and marigolds.
We also leave a little catnip on the alter for Toot and Alex!
