Mexico is a country full of traditions that transcend borders, and we are known around the world for celebrating our dead. Since pre-Hispanic times, the natives have worshiped death and have conceived it as a duality of life and part of the cycle of nature. Skulls, "Pan de Muerto", burlesque drawings of death & verses of living and dead characters, are part of this tradition. Go out to the streets and live Mexico, our culture, our food, our music and of course celebrate your dead.

Calaverita - Sugar Skull
If you approach today to any offer of the day of the dead you will find not only sugar skulls, but also others made with chocolate, amaranth or gummy; these have been elaborated by the inhabitants of different parts of the country using other tasty ingredients, but guarding with much suspicion their festive art and meaning. There are some that are bathed in honey and have peanuts, pumpkin seeds or sesame seeds.
