To Those Appropriating Dia de los Muertos This Year –

Feeling like a flustered child when I see you with already pale face painted in sugar skull patterns, your up-do, your poufy dress, a complete costume that means nothing to you but “creative expression” and a chance to win Best Halloween Makeup. 


Yeah, it has bothered me for a long time that Dia de Los Muertos has been appropriated by folks as just another excuse to party by taking on what is a real holiday for another culture.
