Oops, we pulled a boner!

In the rush to put out the last issue of The EPITAPH, we missed another favorite celebration. The Day of the Skulls celebration in La Paz, Bolivia, Saturday, Nov. 8, 2008. Aymara Indians revere the skulls of their relatives and believe they protect them from evil and help them attain their goals. Relatives decorate the skulls and carry them to church or cemeteries to be blessed. What a party, huh!?

  1. oh sure, “revering the skulls of … relatives” is a lot easier than dealing with them in the flesh. definitely quieter, probably less expensive, and if their help attaining goals falls short, they never say “toldja so”. win-win.
