Feliz Dia De Muertos!
A “calavera” is Spanish for skull and “calverita” refers to the little sugar skulls that people gift and decorate for the Day of the Dead. Dia de Muertos is one of my favorite holidays,is traditionally a Mexican holiday that has spread to other Latin countries in the world. It focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. Certain traditions of 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.
