About the Day of the Dead
The Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos in Spanish) is a Mexican holiday that takes place every year on the 1st and 2nd of November. It is a celebration of loved ones who have passed to the other side. It may sound sad and morose, but it's actually a positive way to reconnect with the dead and rejoice in their memory.
The roots of the popular holiday can be traced back 4,000 years to the Aztecs who believed that if you cry for someone who's passed, they may slip and fall on your tears. The holiday has since been transformed by Catholicism, which is why it takes place on All Saints' and All Souls' Day.
When people celebrate the Day of the Dead they throw parties, make all kinds of special foods, build altars, and decorate graves. Thaneeya's sugar skull art was partially inspired by the practice of making skulls out of sugar and decorating them with foil, colored icing, and other trinkets. These sugar skulls are then given as gifts to the living or offered to the dead.
