Dia de los Muertos is a 3,000 year-old Mexican holiday where you celebrate the cycle of life. Held on November 1st and 2nd, you honor loved ones who have passed away by creating a beautiful ofrenda to them with all their favorite foods, hobbies, music, and photos and more. There is always coffee or some kind of hot drink involved because part of the tradition is to set out pan de muerto (bread of the dead) – it is a sweetened bread.
Crafts are also a big part of the festivities! From hand cut paper banners to decorated sugar skulls – creativity abounds! On that note, I made this mug in honor of Dia de los Muertos!
