The Dark Side of Suburbia by Cindy Hulsey

El Dia de Los Muertos and Halloween

October is almost over, and that means that two holidays are coming up. Halloween, on October 31st, probably springs to mind first for most Americans, but the festival of El Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, will also take place over the upcoming weekend.  While those unfamiliar with the Day of the Dead may confuse it with Halloween, regarding both holidays as "spooky," actually the holidays are quite different, although they share some of the same roots in harvest festivals and the Catholic Church.
