To be honest, I still don’t understand what Christ’s resurrection has to do with nationwide ceramic craft fairs, but I’m a sucker for a nice stomna. This day is the most lucrative display of craftsmanship for all of our local artisans and an excuse to show how diligently Christian we all are.
I don’t believe in ghosts but when mom’s bottle of Sauvignon Blanc burst out of thin air on the day she forgot to bring offerings to grandma’s grave, I started reconsidering. Nice move, grandma, always a fan of that white vino. Generally, though, our day of the dead doesn’t go as creepily as this one, and families simply bring offerings to loved ones’ graves as a sign of respect.
