Day 127: Day of the Dead

Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico. It is celebrated on the 1st of Novemnber and persons paint their faces as skulls and wear flowers in their hair, which is what I’ve done.
