Día de los Muertos

Yesterday was the Mexican day of the dead and I thought why not celebrate our lost ones through a new post.  Everyone has their own views and beliefs when it comes to death, and each individual chooses different ways to remember their lost ones.  Typically when someone passes the same songs get chosen to play each time at their funeral.  These songs may pick out an aspect of their life or it may have sentimental value.  I personally believe that it's good to have quite an upsetting service as a good way of releasing recent suppressed emotions.  Life should be celebrated no matter how long that person was with you, and Día de los Muertos always helps me to remember this.
