El Dia de los Muertos

The day of the dead. Night of the living dead. Nahhh.. let’s keep with the day. El Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead), a Mexican celebration, is a day to celebrate, remember and prepare special foods in honor of those who have departed. On this day in Mexico, the streets near the cemeteries are filled with decorations of papel picado, flowers, candy calaveras (skeletons and skulls), and parades. This minni munny car is my representation of the celebration for the ones who have gone before us. I tried to keep it light, even though the subject matter could be considered morbid.

  1. The first part is for dead children and toys and candy are left, the next day is for adults and full meals are left. Id say this is for the kids day. 🙂
