That is one reason why my dad’s convention is being held here, because it is so organized and safe and secure. ” But lots of events do take place here. Dad’s conference isn’t the only thing going on. At Mohonk this weekend they are also celebrating the Day of the Dead, which is a Mexican festival, along with Halloween. Halloween, as every kid knows, is on October 31. Its name comes, as a lot of kids don’t know, from the eve of All Hallows, a time to celebrate all the Christian saints. ) The Day of the Dead is actually the two days right after Halloween, November 1 and 2.
It’s true—I’m beginning to feel like my old, K 32 L imaginative self. The image of that deadly, hungry but goofy lake creature is doing it for me. It fits right in with what my father always said when he told me our old Mohawk stories about monsters: “Molly girl, those monsters were big and dangerous and hungry . . and stupid. ” I imagine a girl—a girl who looks like me but a lot younger—who has hidden inside the big old hotel while all the other kids have gone out to play. From behind the curtains of her window she has seen the lake monster scarf down lunch baskets and lure in foolish children.
It is an old indigenous celebration. The Aztecs celebrated it around the end of what we call the month of July. It was presided over by Mictecacihuatl, the “Lady of the Dead,” who K 44 L was a powerful, benevolent being who loved little children and even acted as their protector, a sort of messenger from the ancestors, who were always watching over their descendants. But the priests who arrived with the Spanish conquistadors didn’t appreciate that the local people followed the old ways. They wanted them to honor just the Christian saints.
