24 Festive Tasks: Door 1 – Día de los Muertos (November 1)

And here is our calendar’s very first opened door: Día de los Muertos!

To learn more about this holiday, see our post from last year: http://jenn.booklikes.com/post/1613175/the-first-square-all-saints-day-dia-de-muertos-and-calan-gaeaf

Tasks and Book

Task 1: Write a silly poem or limerick poking fun at the fiction character of your choice.

Task 2: Share your favorite gravestone epitaph (you know you have one).

Task 3: Create an altar (either digital or physical) for your favorite book, series, or book character, and post a picture of it. Inclusion of book cover encouraged.

Task 4: If you like Mexican food, treat yourself to your favorite dish and share a photo of it.

Book: Re-read an old favorite from a now-deceased author, a book from a finished (dead) series, or a book set in Mexico.

Remember, it only takes one of these to complete the square. Completing additional tasks will, however, earn you extra points.
