Dia de Muertos

Last night I went to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery's Day of the Dead event with my husband, aka Lucifer. We wondered through the cemetery in darkness, traipsing over grave markers and along plush lawn to get to the event.

It was actually quite beautiful. Out in the grave yard were small orbs of light set upon the gravestones and in the ponds were alter-candle laden floats drifting about.

Once inside we found a food court, craft booths, live music and roads lined with alters. Some very traditional, some very Hollywood.

Most attendees embraced the spirit of the evening and dressed for the occasion in their worthiest of costumes.
