The Day of the Dead (Dia de Los Muertos in Spanish) is a Mexican multi-day holiday, starting on 31st October and ending on 2nd November. It celebrates deceased family and friends and honours them with festivals and lively celebrations including food, drinks, parties, and activities the dead enjoyed in life.
The most familiar symbols of the Dia de Los Muertos are the calacas and calaveras (skeletons and skulls), which are generally depicted as joyous rather than mournful figures. They appear everywhere during the festival, including carved skull masks, small figures made out of carved wood or fired clay, and sweet treats… And you can get them on fabulous wallpaper too!
