What is the "Day of the Dead" about anyhow? Some of us are NOT from New Orleans originally. It sounds like it might be a tradition out of Vodou or something ... is it. I'm guessing because of the reference to Gede corresponding to a saint. Thanks. I have no problem with participating ... just curious. This city has some very interesting and rich traditions.
