Dia de los Muertos

Ofrenda, or Offering is part of the traditional Mexican celebration of Dia de los Muertos. A special spot in the home is selected to put photographs, flowers, decorations, lit candles and the favorite food and drink of those who have passed away. This act of preparing an altar of offerings to the dead helps transform grief into acceptance.

Las Abuelas - the grandmothers, I especially liked this altar as it reminded me of my own grandmothers and how much I miss them.
