Today marks the beginning of the 2-day Mexican holiday of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). The two days coincide with the Catholic holidays of All Saints’ and All Souls’ Day, which are also days set aside for observance of those who have passed. Images associated with the celebration include sugar skulls, marigold flowers, alters and gift offerings. Although I am not especially observant of this holiday, I love going to events on these days and seeing all the beautiful art created for the celebration.
