Are you looking to celebrate Halloween or Day of the Dead? These are the perfect earrings for both holidays. The color scheme would work with any outfit you choose. Why not wear them for the whole month of October showing your friends how much you love Halloween.
While the holiday of Día de los Muertos is rooted in the Catholic holidays of All Saint’s Day and All Hollow’s Day, the indigenous people of central and southern Mexico have adapted these traditions to include ancient Aztec beliefs of honoring their deceased loved ones. The holidays celebrate the belief that the gates of heaven are opened on these dates to allow deceased loved ones to return and spend the day with their families. At midnight on October 31, and the spirits of all deceased children, known as angelitos, are allowed to reunite with their families for 24 hours. On this same day, small skulls are often placed on the offrenda (altar), representing the children who have passed. The following day, November 2, larger and more detailed skulls replace the smaller ones, representing the deceased adults who now come down to enjoy the festivities that are prepared for them
