  7. Sugar Skulls – A Day of the Dead Tradition

    This time of year, especially, we are completely smitten with the colorful Day of the Dead imagery, particularly sugar skulls! Day of the Dead is celebrated in many cultures throughout the world, but it is best known as a Mexican holiday celebrated on November 1st and 2nd.  The holiday is a time to pray for, remember and honor the deceased.

    Typically, private altars to the deceased are constructed at home and decorated with photos, candles, sugar skulls (a type of candy), marigolds, small trinkets and favorite foods and drinks of the deceased.  It is believed that the spirits of the deceased eat the “essence” of the food, and that a living person who eats the food after the spirit has gotten to it will be safe, but will have gotten no nutritive value from it.
