6 ways to adorn yourself to celebrate Day of the Dead

Halloween is over but don’t pack away your costumes and make up just yet. You still have time to continue the celebration with Day of the Dead otherwise known as Día de los Muertos.

Día de los Muertos comes from a mixture of Spanish Catholic and Aztec roots within the Mexican culture which pays homage and respect to the ancestors. 

The Day of the Dead festivities begin on November 1st and 2nd with music, food, and rituals. Patrons will leave the favorite items of loved ones on the gravesites of the deceased, or on ofrendas (altars), dressing in skull-like appearance and celebrating with family. It is believed that the border between the spirit and living world has vanished for the time being, hence the ancestors can visit and enjoy the gifts left for them. 

“By celebrating Día de los Muertos, we affirm that we are alive, and have the ability to continue to create new memories, while simultaneously never forgetting where we have come from.” --J.R Guzman, Wish H.R Operations Manager
