What is the Day of the Dead?
A public holiday celebrated in Mexico on 1st and 2nd November but cultures across the world celebrate the day as well. During the celebrations it's traditional to set up an altar in memory of friends and family who have passed away and dress the altar with offerings including food. Brightly decorated skulls made of sugar are also left on alters and tombs and it's these colourful skulls that have inspired many of the products in this range and which are now popular across the globe.
Are the products only popular in November?
No. Although the public holiday takes place in November, the skulls are a popular gift all year round thanks to their bright colours and unique style.
