The Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and by people of Mexican heritage throughout the world. The holiday begins on October 31st and ends November 2nd. It is meant to celebrate loved ones and honor deceased relatives.
The Day of the Dead shares similarities with Halloween, including some similar practices, from decorating with pictures of skeletons, to ghoulishly shaped sweets, like the famous pan de muertos (bread of the dead) or the sugar calaveras (skulls). The significance of skulls in both holidays serve as a reminder of the connection between life and death. Whether you use decorations, costumes, or novelty items to celebrate relatives in the after life or in the spirit of Halloween, and the significant connection between life and death, we’ve got you covered!
