Kites for helping good souls rest in peace
What's the best time to fly a kite? Spring? How about on November 1, the Day of the Dead? The article in the March-April issue of ICCFA Magazine on the Day of the Dead observance at the Aguilar family's cemetery, Los Parques, shows children flying small kites and refers to the giant kites created at the old Santiago cemetery, a few miles away. The kites are said to dissipate the evil souls, allowing the good souls to rest in peace.
