Sugar Skull

Sugar Skulls are a traditional folk art from Southern Mexico used to celebrate Day of the Dead. Mounds of colorful sugar skulls are sold by Indian vendors in open air village markets during the week preceding the holiday. Spirits of the dead are welcomed back to their homes with beautifully decorated altars made by their loved ones.  Sugar skulls, marigolds, candles, incense and special foods adorn home altars. (adapted from to make your own sugar skulls click here for recipe
