Day of the Dead

I'm so glad to see this topic come back to life! (Sorry, I couldn't resist the theme. I know you've both been busy.)

I'm very taken with the imagery of a beating masa by hand until fluffy and light. Strength, indeed! I have to resort to electricity to whip cream, for heaven's sake, much less masa. The corundas sound tasty. Thanks to Heidi for adding a video,

I'm still eager to hear more, after y'all catch your breath! Like Nancy in Mexico, I want to know why it's called difuntos in Ecuador.

Anything else you can add will be welcome. If it isn't too far off-topic, I'd like to know whether people *feel* the presence of loved ones' returns, or simply try to recognize that they might be there? The flowers and recognition of babies lost particularly haunts me. I hope the parents find some comfort.

It is short of a month away but I hope we may see some local input from our members south of the border.  Always a big deal in Los Angeles and I know Covid will restrict gatherings but I love to hear the traditions both ancient and newly massaged.
