On the Mexican Dia de los Muertos, the living remember the dead.
It’s a joyous occasion, and people mark the day by cleaning their homes and sprucing up the graveyards
of departed loved ones with flowers and decorations.
The most popular Day of the Dead icons are skulls and skeletons,
which pop up everywhere on the weeks leading up to Dia de los Muertos.
Day of the Dead skulls are whimsical and colorful, rather than frightening or macabre.
They symbolize mortality and the cycle of life and death.
I’ve made you a gift of a Dia de los Muertos skull and a marigold… Drop by and pick yours up!
