The air was crisp, cool and lit by the Día de los Muertos procession as it wound through the Mission. Thousands came out to participate, and still it felt like a family affair, one with a feeling of respectful reverence. Lots of hot dogs sautéed with onions were sold and people were happy to see one another, but it was a gathering, not a party.
