On November first, every little boy and every little girl
puts out ofrendas and offerings for our lost loved ones.
Some may scream, some may shout, but we all know deep in our
hearts that they cross to the living world and watch over us making
sure we’re safe.
Some don’t believe and some do, that without their picture on the ofrenda
a loved one. they can’t cross over to the living world; for this reason
we never forget a loved one.
Our spirit guiders, alebrijes, guide the spirits of our loved ones
to the after-life and now they guide them to our ofrendas
full of love and offerings.
We feel their presence as their spirits run through our bones and leap
into our hearts with great joy and pride.
That’s our November promise.
