Last Day! Sugar Skulls Craft for Latinx Heritage Month
Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday that celebrates and honors those who have passed. One tradition includes building ofrendas (altars) honoring the deceased using brightly colored skulls, marigolds, and possessions of the departed.
