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
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
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
I will do three things..
