Day of the Dead
Day Of The Dead
(Dia de Muertos)
Day of the Dead is a rare holiday for celebrating death and life. It is unlike any holiday -- mourning is exchanged for celebration.
Calaveras - The Skulls - are essential to any Day of the Dead celebration. The skulls are often drawn with a smile as to laugh at death itself. They take many forms such as sugar candies, clay decorations, and most memorable: face painting.
The famous Skull Makeup is also a very important visual symbol during Día de los Muertos festivities. These are not intended to be scary. On the contrary, the skulls are applied to the face using very colorful paint and are meant to represent our mortality in a united way.
