I arrive in Guatemala on, November 1st. I’m

curious about this holiday, so I go to the cemetery to see what’s happening. What I find is
quite interesting. The atmosphereis
like a party. There are people
everywhere. Families are sitting around the
graves of their dead
ancestors . They clean the graves graves and add fresh flowers. I walk through the
cemetery and
admire the beautyofall the
colorful flowers. There is also 
color in the sky , because many kids are flying
kites . Some families are having a picnic next to the graves. They eat, drink, and
chat together . People 
laugh and smile. In the Unites States, cemeteries are always
somber . We 
certainly never have festivals or parties next to graves. We don’t laugh or play music or fly kites in cemeteries
either . I find that I prefer the Guatemalan
approach . I like the way they remember and 
celebrate those who have 
passed away . I like that they 
acknowledge death,  
instead of  
denying it the way Americans do. I like that there is life,   as well as death, in their cemeteries. Guatemalans call it “The Day of the Dead”, but it is also a day to 
appreciate life.
