Oh boy do I wish I could be in Oaxaca right now, celebrating the Day of the Dead... I've been going every year for the last 5 years but never for this holiday which is probably one of the biggest celebration there. I love the idea of celebrating the deads in a joyful fashion and welcoming their spirit back to your life for the occasion. Maybe next year... In the meantime, I found a few pictures on Flickr here and there; here are some of my favorites:

But I'm moving away from the JOYOUS spirit here... so some more pictures...

Again, you can see more pictures on Flickr. Also a sweet video of the party in Oaxaca here.
And now, off to honor my own dead, with a glass of vino (in lieu of sugar skulls)...
