Friday Night Photos Dia De Los Muertos Edtion

Happy Friday everyone. Hope everybody is doing well. Post any photos, memes, or music you like.

El Día de los Muertos is not, as is commonly thought, a Mexican version of Halloween, though the two holidays do share some traditions, including costumes and parades. On the Day of the Dead, it’s believed that the border between the spirit world and the real world dissolves. During this brief period, the souls of the dead awaken and return to the living world to feast, drink, dance and play music with their loved ones. In turn, the living family members treat the deceased as honored guests in their celebrations, and leave the deceased’s favorite foods and other offerings at gravesites or on the ofrendas built in their homes. Ofrendas can be decorated with candles, bright marigolds called cempasuchil and red cock’s combs alongside food like stacks of tortillas and fruit.

A Wild, Disabled, but Fully Competent, Fox!
Even disabled wild animals sometimes do well. I have saved this clip from the BBC for a while. Basically, I put it into my bookmarks and then forgot it Wink . So now, I'm posting it to start this Thursday's Open Thread. A two legged fox appeared in a couple's garden in Ilkeston, Derbyshire, England, and was filmed! It appears to be very healthy; it was eating fine, hopping and running. Go fox!

A Picture of the Fox: From an article at the Daily Mail.

It’s Joe Biden, David. I’m humbly asking you to pitch in any amount before our October deadline. Even just a few bucks adds up in a big way when everyone chips in, especially early on. We’re just over one year out from one of the biggest elections of our lives, and I can’t win this thing without you. Please donate here: bvf4us.com/chip-in-oct-30-s5?t=ZxiNq
