Whatever Wednesday – Blessed Dia de Los Muertos

Beautiful Jill-o-lantern in Osaka, Japan

Dia De Los Muertos was passed today with shopping, good food and time spent perusing old photographs of our ancestors. Hope your day was wonderful too.

      1. I’m sure a lot of countries don’t celebrate Halloween. It is one of the oldest holidays in the US, but it wasn’t until the 20s that it became a party holiday. “In the 1920s, rowdy pranks had become expensive and costly, especially in major cities. Over time, cities and towns began organizing tame, family-oriented Halloween celebrations, which eventually helped reduce the number of reported pranks. Once candy companies began releasing special Halloween-themed candies, our modern idea of “trick-or-treating” was born.” History of Halloween in America.

        “Trick-or-treating does not seem to have become a widespread practice until the 1930s, with the first U.S. appearance of the term in 1932, and the first use in a national publication occurring in 1939.” Trick or Treating – Wikipedia.
