Happy Day of the Dead

     We celebrated this week's Mexican holiday, "Dia de los Muertos", at my West Kendall school. 

  Each of my 700 students made and decorated paper masks for the November 1 holiday, the one that explores the spiritual connection between the living and the dead.

      My kids were very excited because the special day is a central theme in the new animated kid's movie, "The Book of Life".

       Some of my kids celebrate the DOTD as well with their families.  The students told me they visit the graves of loved ones or offer toasts to the departed.  
     I asked, "Do any of you dress up like skeletons
on the Day of the Dead (as kids often do in Mexico)?".  "No", was their usual replay, "That would be too weird".

W I S H I N G  Y O U  a Happy Halloween, Felice Dia de Los Muertos and a blessed All Saints Day.

  1. I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
