So the best thing ever happened on our way to Van Pelt just now. We were walking down the Walk, and we heard a faint drumming that got louder as we approached the library. Turns out Mex @ Penn and MEChA de Penn hosted traditional Mexican reenactors to perform a dance for Día de los Muertos.
Día de los Muertos, also known as the Day of the Dead, occurs on November 1st and 2nd. The holiday serves to memorialize and celebrate dead loved ones and coincides with All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day.
Yep, it's so much better than Halloween.
