Surprise friends with a candy filled Day of the Dead Skull Box. 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.

Common symbols of the Day of the Dead holiday include skeletons, skulls 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.

Include a hand painted, ceramic Day of the Dead Skull Box in your Day of the Dead alter, side table or night stand. They are perfect for small articles such as jewelry, paperclips, rubber bands, ribbons or even Halloween candy. The boxes are individually painted by hand and each comes with its own Day of the Dead design.  They are similar and coordinate well together but are also unique.

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