KUNM Call In Show Thu 10/31 8a: A time of remembrance.  A scary time.  A solemn time.  A joyful time.  All of the above?

Whether we observe or celebrate Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, All Saints Day, All Souls Day, or a mix of all, this time of year brings an opportunity to share in communal rituals that remind, unite and excite.  Join us as we look at the evolution and blending of traditions in New Mexico and beyond.  

In what rituals do you participate?  Have they been passed down or have you created your own?  We'd like to hear from you!  Email callinshow@kunm.org, post your comments online, or call in live during the show.
