In the spirit of Halloween and this year's upcoming Day of the Dead on November 1-2nd, we are revisiting the adventurous film The Book of Life and sharing some fun activity ideas with you. 

The Book of Life

THE BOOK OF LIFE is a breathtaking animated comedy with a dazzling visual style unlike anything you’ve seen before. Torn between the expectations of his family and the desires of his heart, a young man named Manolo sets off on an epic quest that spans three spectacular worlds in order to reunite with his one true love and defend his village. Not your ordinary fairy tale, THE BOOK OF LIFE is a wondrous fantasy-adventure filled with magic, music and fun!

Day of the Dead 

This Mexican holiday focuses on gathering family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died.

Some holiday traditions include building private altars called ofrendas, honoring those who have died using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed; and visiting graves with these items as gifts. Visitors also leave possessions of their dead loved ones at the graves.
