The Day of the Dead or Día de Muertos is a special day celebrated in Mexico on October 31st or on Halloween. See it is a day that finds those who do indeed celebrate to remember those family members or friends who have died.
This day for those who observe it includes festivals, parades and more.
Even though, I am not of Mexican descent, I have been fascinated by this special day, as well as the colorful skulls and artistic creations that are centered around this day.
As cheesy as it may sounds, but one of my favorite places when we visit Disney is Mexico in Epcot. Specifically the the Aztec Temple that houses the San Angel Inn Restaurant, The Three Caballeros ride and the Mexican shopping market place.
I always make sure to visit it whenever we are in Epcot. I also am always tempted to buy one of those skulls, but afraid that it would get broken on the return flight home. So, this year I settled to get a t-shirt with the Day of the Dead Skull pattern on it.
But still what better way to celebrate this upcoming holiday any day of the year, then to try a few of the Day of the Dead crafts, I found recently on Google.
