Day of the Dead otherwise known as Día de los Muertos in Spanish. I often questioned the meaning of these creative passion painted skulls. This is a holiday often celebrated in Mexico and Latin America. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died.Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts. They also leave possessions of the deceased.
Sugar skulls being a treat that is made to look of skulls, with tasty colorful accents. Día de los Muertos is celebrated Oct. 31st thru Nov. 2nd.
Now-a-days this is a very popular look for Halloween.
Could this possibly be your costume this year?
