Day of the Dead At all Times of the Year

Craneo for Day of the Dead

I’m sure all of you know that many Mexicans believe the souls of the dead return once a year to visit the living. The beautiful rituals around “Muertos” or Day of the Dead are limited to that period of the year from mid October through the first two days of early November. But the images of skeletons, the availability of folk art from that period of time and prominence of the thinking–the dead are with us–can be seen at any time of the year.
