Happy Dia de los Muertos!

Dia de los Muertos is the Mexican tradition of honoring our ancestors by visiting graveyards, setting up altars with pictures of dead family and friends, decorated and set with offerings of food, paper banners, and flowers. It’s a lovely tradition that keeps the memories of those who have passed alive and in some small way, keeps them alive, too.

While the “Night of Remembrance” coincides with Halloween and bears similar trappings of ghosts and skeletons, the two celebrations are very different. Calling it “Mexican Halloween” does it a disservice, like calling Hannukah “Jewish Christmas.” They’re just not the same.

Bonfire at the Scranton Iron Furnaces

The annual bonfire at the Scranton Iron Furnaces was a great success, with a sell-out crowd and huge lines for card readings. Three readers were busy all night, even as they were taking down the rest of the venues. It’s always a fun time for the whole family.

Keep your eye on their website for next year’s bonfire and prequel events.

Next up for us, reading cards for Dress for Success Lackawanna’s The Witch and the Wardrobe fundraiser coming up on October 26th. | Details

Looks to be a great time for a great cause!
