I don’t know if this was a problem in other families, but at our house, “Coco” was a bit of a controversy.
Sure, I know, the latest Pixar offering doesn’t offer most people any more trouble than deciding which showing you’re going to take the kids to and whether or not you need to buy tickets in advance. For us, though, there’s a little more to it. We are a Day of the Dead house. For one, my wife grew up in El Paso, Texas where Hispanic culture is preeminent. We’ve both always liked Halloween, and to be frank, Day of the Dead has a better aesthetic, so it’s a natural fit. To top it off, our daughter was born on November 2 – better known as Dia de los Muerto.
