    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dvXF3o-TnU GUATEMALA DAY OF THE DEAD VIDEO!! People go to local graveyard and have a picnic on relatives graves and fly GIANT kites!! I attended this twice in the 1980's, very spectacular!! I love day of the dead, for a few 1000's of years it has been celebrated! I believe my skeleton is from Mexico, beautifully carved and joints well made! Day of the Dead is celebrated here where I live also and huge in San Francisco!! Maybe I walk in parade with my new friend!! He is over 36 in. tall thanks for looking! please take a look at Guatemala video!! Beautiful!!! Last photo is San Francisco Celebration! Don

      Nice video!
      Does Simon's new friend have a name?
      I was confused when you said it was "my skeleton", thought you had dismantled yourself :-O
