The Day of the Dead is celebrated throughout Mexico annually in late October or early November to coincide with the Catholic holiday of All Saints Day.  Family and friends gather to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey. People enjoy this public holiday with building private alters, visiting graves and honoring the deceased with sugar skulls, flowers and favorite foods.

A common symbol of the Day of the Dead holiday is the skull and the Catrina, a beautiful female skeleton dressed in a flamboyant hat befitting the upper classes.  These images are seen over and over in Day of the Dead folk art from Mexico such as the many hand-painted ceramics from Topanien Global Gifts.

Present a hand painted, ceramic Day of the Dead Box to friends. This ceramic box with skeleton friends design is perfect for holding paper clips, rings, rubber bands, earrings, secret little love notes and other smaller articles in need of a delightful container.

If giving a Mexican Day of the Dead Box to a friend, be sure to request free gift wrapping during your check out.
