In Spain this is what is considered ghoulish. Revenge of the Las Indigenas-Oaxaca
What a difference a year makes! Last year I was sipping chocolate con leche in the beautiful zocalo of Oaxaca, watching the nightly parades of disfraces and bandas as they made their way through the cobblestone streets. This year, I’ve barely had time from work and my commute to even think about Halloween and Dia de los Muertos. For me, this is my holiday season, the time of the year I celebrate, decorate and look forward to. Unfortunately, the weight and responsibilities of daily life and the rat race have rudely interrupted my commitment to festivity. So this year, it’s about memories and I’ll start with photographs from last year’s celebrations in Mexico. Enjoy!

These are some of the coolest homemade decorations! Paper mache heads on sticks illuminated by candles inside. At night they make quite a presence-Oaxaca.

Not a good photo but these costumes were impressive! -Oaxaca
These stilt walkers were drinking and dancing too! Pretty amazing feat walking uphill on cobblestone streets.
