ps..a little random information for you all, you will often see skulls used regularly in Mexican art. Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday celebrated in Mexico and the US.
The holiday focuses remebering friends and family members who have passed.
Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls (colourful skulls like the image on the left made from sugar) and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts.
The holiday is believed to date back to the Aztecs, where the worship of death involved worship of life, while the skull – symbol of death – was a promise to resurrection.
