El Dia de los Muertos - Mexico, Latin America

In the Latin world, Halloween is a three day long celebration that starts on October 31. The celebration is known as El Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, and has been celebrated since prehistoric Mexico to celebrate the memory of those who have passed.

Villages will hold parades during this time that feature dancers dressed as skeletons and a living person inside a coffin that is carried by ushers.

Families believe the spirits of their loved ones return during this time of year so they construct an altar in their living room adorned with candy, flowers,photographs, water and some of their relative's favorite foods. Candles are burned to help guide the deceased home.

On November 2, relatives gather at the cemetery to enjoy a picnic (often featuring skull-shaped treats) and reminisce about those they have lost.

They also clean and repair the gravesite and then adorn it with flowers, wreaths and paper streamers. In recent years, revelers have started wearing Halloween costumes to the picnic, fusing American traditions with traditional Latin ones. More Weird Halloween Traditions

Strange Food: Fish Bladder Jelly

The Victorians used the bladder of the sturgeon fish to make a sweet jelly dessert.

The process involved isolating a substance called isinglass from the bladder. It was originally an ingredient in glue but gained popularity in England as a foodstuff in the late 18th century. It is still used to make some beers and wines, including Guinness beer.

Isinglass acts like gelatin or pectin to congeal liquid and make it thick. To make sugary jellies, Victorians boiled down filtered isinglass with water, sugar, lemon juice, and fruit. More Strange Foods

Quotes From Comedian Mitch Hedberg Of The Day

RIP, you funny dead bastard.
I saw this wino, he was eating grapes. I was like, "Dude, you have to wait."

My fake plants died because I did not pretend to water them.

One time, this guy handed me a picture of him, he said,"Here's a picture of me when I was younger." Every picture is of you when you were younger. "Here's a picture of me when I'm older." "You son-of-a-bitch! How'd you pull that off?"

This shirt is "dry-clean only"...which means it's dirty.

I used to do drugs. I still do, but I used to, too.

I think Pringles original intention was to make tennis balls... but on the day the rubber was supposed to show up a truckload of potatoes came. Pringles is a laid-back company, so they just said, "Fuck it, cut em up!"

I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it.

I wave to people I don't know. It's very dangerous to wave to someone you don't know because, what if they don't have a hand? They'll think you're cocky.

I think they could take sesame seeds off the market and I wouldn't even care. I can't imagine 5 years from now, saying, "Damn, remember sesame seeds? What happened? All the buns are blank!

How's a sesame seed stick to a bun? That's fuckin' magical! There's got to be some sesame seed glue out there! Either that, or they're adhesive on one side. "Take the sesame seed out, remove the backing, place it on the bun. Now your bun will look spectacular."

What does a sesame seed grow into? I don't know, we never gave them a chance!

I walked into Target, but I missed. I think the entrance to Target should have people splattered all around. And, when I finally get in, the guy says, "Can I help you?" "Just practicing."

When I was a boy, I laid in my twin-sized bed and wondered where my brother was.

I want to hang a map of the world in my house, and then I’m gonna put pins into all the locations that I’ve traveled to. But first I’m gonna have to travel to the top two corners of the map, so it won’t fall down.

A burrito is a sleeping bag for ground beef.

I order the club sandwich all the time, but I'm not even a member, man. I don't know how I get away with it. How'd it start anyway? I like my sandwiches with three pieces of bread. So do I! Well let's form a club then.

A severed foot is the ultimate stocking stuffer.

I've got an oscillating fan at my house. The fan goes back and forth. It looks like the fan is saying "No". So I like to ask it questions that a fan would say "no" to. "Do you keep my hair in place? Do you keep my documents in order? Do you have 3 settings? Liar!"

I had a parrot. The parrot talked, but it did not say "I'm hungry," so it died.

My belt holds up my pants and my pants have belt loops that hold up the belt. What the fuck’s really goin on down there? Who is the real hero?

I saw a lady on T.V. She was born without arms. Literally, she was born with her hands attached to her shoulders... and that was sad, but then they said, "Lola does not know the meaning of the word 'can't.'" And that to me was kinda worse... in a way... ya know? Not only does she not have arms, but she doesn't understand simple contractions.

I went to a record store, they said they specialized in hard-to-find records. Nothing was alphabetized.

I saw a commercial on late night TV, it said,"Forget everything you know about slipcovers." So I did. And it was a load off my mind. Then the commercial tried to sell me slipcovers, and I didn't know what the hell they were.

I love sandwiches. Sandwiches are easy to eat, but I hate sandwiches at New York delis; too much fuckin' meat on the sandwich. It's like a cow with a cracker on either side.

I got a king sized bed. I don't know any kings, but if one came over, I guess he'd be comfortable. "Oh, you're a king, you say? Well you won't believe what I have in store for you! It's to your exact specifications! I believe I can set up your old lady, too!

I get the Reese's candy bar, if you read that name Reese's that's an apostrophe s. Reese-apostrophe-s, on the end of that name. That means the candy bar is his, I didn't know that! Next time you're eating a Reese's candy bar and a guy name Reese comes by and says, "Let me have that," you'd better hand it over. "I'm sorry, Reese, I didn't think I'd ever run into you! You're a fuckin' bully, man! Let me at least have a piece!"
