Sugar Skulls

Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, s a Mexican holiday celebrated every year on November 1st and 2nd.  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.  Artisans have been making beautifully decorated sugar skulls for generations, and now the artform has turned into very popular face painting designs!

Happy Día de los Muertos!
