Day of the Dead

Throughout the world, people have special days when they gather family and friends to remember, celebrate and pray for family and friends who have died. One of the richest of these traditions is Day of the Dead, or Dia de Los Muertos, dating back to Aztec times, and celebrated in Mexico and Latino communities in the US. On November 1st and 2nd, ancestors are permitted to visit the living. Families fashion altars out of sugar skulls and all manner of figures, festooned with foods and hobbies of the deceased. They visit their loved ones’ graves with these offerings in hand.

Here at Crossroads Trade, we celebrate with altars, all manner of skeletons, papel picado banners, and the fixings for do-it-yourself sugar skulls. Check our website or store events every October and November!
