Halloween & Día de los Muertos

Food and the dead, Irish begging door-to-door, Tim Burton’s “Nightmare Before Christmas,” Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”

“Coco,” directed by Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina (Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Studios, 2017). A terrific animated film that makes use of Mexican customs surrounding the Day of the Dead.
