Wordless Wednesday:

Festive Food Table for Dia de los Muertos

 

Food Table at Dia de los Muertos gathering 2018

 

We have attended a very popular Dia de los Muertos ("Day of the Dead") gathering in Cardiff for a number of years - the daughter of our very good friends and former neighbors and there are usually 100 people or so.

 

The food is always amazing; catered, but with guests bringing appetizers or deserts.

 

Sadly there won't be a gathering this year, for obvious reasons, but I'll enjoy reliving past events in all the photos I have. Stay tuned for more.

Hi Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR 

The Day of the Dead gatherings are pretty fun, and meaningful in so many ways. It's a pretty cool Mexican tradition and there are plenty of public and private gatherings...although certainly different this year and perhaps confined to immediate families.

Yikes. The pictures seem to indicate that social distancing was occuring. Not so big in Phoenix any more it seems

Morning Jeff.

We are under a mandate about masks when we go shopping, meals etc.  When one goes to Missouri or Oklahoma, not so much.

Hello Jeff - while Dia De Los Muertos may be different this year, you definitely has some festive memories to keep the holiday "alive".  Although, I can't recall attending such a party, I continue to be amazed(and impressed) with such creativity.

Good morning, Jeff... sadly this is a year in which many of us are forgoing larger gatherings we've enjoyed in the past. Like you, I will remember past gatherings.

Jeff,

What beautiful photo you shared with us, and many of the gatherings have been canceled or become smaller.  SB County is allowing  gatherings of 10, and I have seen them at one of the restaurants we frequent, since our county was upgraded to red from purple...A

Same here James Dray  Having this event with so many people would be an issue, masks or not, I think.

Hi Michael Jacobs 

Yes having the photos and the memories is nice. No doubt there will be plenty of Dia de los Muertos gatherings, and altars with the offerings, despite the pandemic. It's a big tradition in Mexico.

Jeff Dowler, CRS - Your photographs made me smile and HUNGRY! Although many restaurants and holiday events are still prohibited, one can always make the best of things when it comes to family backyards and time well spent with loved ones or just by themselves. 

Let's celebrate life not regret one single day.

Hi George Souto 

Well, I get that. It certainly does make you think, especially when people are sharing stories, memories, and lots of photos about loved ones who are gone.
