Dia de los Muertos
20 designs collected by spoonflower
Several thousand years ago, the Aztec, Toltec, and other Nahua people welcomed the dead (who remained members of the community) temporarily back to earth during Día de los Muertos. Combining pre-Hispanic cultures and Christian feasts, today’s festival has evolved into Mexico’s most colorful yearly event, showing respect to family members who have passed on. Traditions range from altars in the home to a grand parade in Mexico City, where revelers dress in calavera Catrina and wear noisemakers to keep spirits close. Designs in this featured collection would be perfect for your trip; plus don’t forget to make this DIY photo garland featuring historical family photos.
