Since I haven't blogged in like, for-EV-er, this is going to be rather long. But don't freak out and think you'll have to read a lot, because it's mostly pictures. You should know, with Halloween fastly approaching, the reason I haven't blogged much lately is because I've been participating in all the local Halloweeny stuff that Prescott, AZ has to offer. One of the coolest things I had the opportunity to attend was Prescott's very own Dia de los Muertos celebration!

Dancers celebrated his life by dancing around his grave, which I felt was kinda creepy. Then we all headed back to the Smoki Museum to view the altars and eat traditional Mexican food like barbeque and Diet Coke.

I learned a lot and had a great time at Prescott's very own Dia de los Muertos celebration. As a result, I have a whole new appreciation for "sharing" this world with those who choose to visit on November 1st. And if I do make a trip to the Citizen's Cemetery on that day, I'll bring a gift. You never know who . . . or what you might see in Prescott, AZ.
