Alright so I know a lot of people get Dia De Los Muertos stuff tattooed on them because it is "cool" or "in" but there are those that truly love, understand, and celebrate it. So in the spirit, memory, and celebration of Dia De Los Muertos who on LST celebrates Dia De Los Muertos wether it is personally or goes to your local town/cities event? Who has Dia De Los Muertos tattoos and yes pictures are always appreciated? Etc? What does your Dia De Los Muertos look like? Here is the info for the SF one that I try attend every year for the past thirteen years up here. I was introduced to Dia De Los Muertos as a kid by the local latino kids I ran with for a few years and have since made it one of my most celebrated and enjoyed "holidays". It is unfortunate but this year may not be what it historically has been due to finances and other reasons of the Mission becoming gentrified. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence as mentioned below raised and donated some money. If you are unfamiliar with them they are pretty awesome and very very supportive and active in many Bay Area fundraising events so encourage you to check them out as well. http://www.dayofthedeadsf.org/
