As a child, I went trickertreating on Halloween, and my daughter did the same, but you know what?...I think the holiday is a tad cheezy and sleazy (am I getting crotchety in my old age?). South of the border and coming up this Nov. 2 is a somewhat similar holiday that I believe is more relevant in our lives...Dia De Los Muertos...Day Of The Dead. It reminds us of our mortality so we can appreciate the moment and the lives of those around us. It honors those who came before us and on whose shoulders we stand. And. like the Gringo's Halloween, it too has sweets and fabulous decorations and costumes. Viva Dia De Los Muertos!
