El Día de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead has been celebrated in Mexico, and other Latin countries, since pre-Columbian times. This is a very special ritual, it is the day in which the living remember their departed relatives. Sometimes, when people of other cultures hear for the first time about the celebration of the Day of the Dead, they mistakenly think it must be: gruesome, terrifying, scary, ugly and sad. Nothing can be further from the truth, Day of the Dead is a beautiful ritual in which Mexicans happily and lovingly remember their loved relatives that have died. Much like when we go to a graveyard to leave some lovely flowers on a tomb. On November 1st and 2nd Mexico celebrates the Day of the Dead, at Masks Y Mas we celebrate 365 days a year with Day of the Dead figurines, accessories, original art, t-shirts, masks, stickers, and accessories that commemorate El Día de los Muertos.
