Whoever says skulls necessarily says dead, is wrong. In Mexico, “El dia de los muertos” was established as early as the 1920s by the nationalist governments that emerged from the 1910 revolution. Mixture of Aztec tradition and All Saints’ Day, Christian feast brought by the Spanish conquistadors, the Day of the Dead is strongly symbolized by these “Calaveras”. Indeed, every November 2, small sugar skulls (“Calaveras de dulce” or “Sugar skulls”) are made to adorn the altars, serve as offerings and celebrate the dead, during very festive ceremonies.
