DAY OF THE DEAD (DIA DE LOS MUERTOS)
The Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere. The multi-day holiday involves family and friends gathering to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and helping support their spiritual journey. In Mexican culture, death is viewed as a natural part of the human cycle. Mexicans view it not as a day of sadness but as a day of celebration because their loved ones awake and celebrate with them.
A common symbol of the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead or Dia de Muertos is the skull (in Spanish calavera), which celebrants represent in masks, called calacas (colloquial term for skeleton). Note decorative our design this three skulls decorated in different style.
