Happy Halloween readers! I hope you and your family had a spooktacular day! We had a great day trick or treating in New Jersey with our family. As usual we have a bag of goodies.

Today begins the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead also known as Dia de Muertos. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey. One great kid film that illustrates this holiday is the Book of Life.
