Dia de los Muertos in Pandanda

Today and tomorrow we are celebrating Dia de los Muertos /Day of the Dead in Pandanda. In some cultures the two days of November 1st and 2nd are called All Saints Day and All Souls Day. But whatever you call it, these are days to gather with your friends and family to remember, honor, and celebrate loved ones who have died.

One of the traditions connected with Day of the Dead is the use of skulls. Decorated skull masks, and chocolate or sugar skulls to eat are very popular. When you log into Pandanda during Day of the Dead, make sure to go by the Clothing Co. on East Market Street to get your free 2nd Edition Day of the Dead Mask from the catalog. It is really cool! Check out Mod Jule in last year's Day of the Dead mask.

While you are at East Market Street, don't forget to look for the hidden Halloween gift. I've seen lots of pandas wearing the gift, and it still makes me jump when the t shirt flashes "BOO!" Awesome!

You have today, tomorrow, and Thursday to finish collecting candy for the Pumpkin Festival. Make sure to exchange your candy for the prizes in the Cauldron of Prizes before the end of the day on Thursday, so you don't miss out!
