Keeping with the true spirit of Day of the Dead, sugar skulls are not creepy or morbid. You can continue the celebration with these festive tins and bright skull candy inside each. Thanks to the manufacturer for these fun facts: Sugar skulls are often used to decorate the altars (ofrendas) during Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) which is November 1 and 2. Each sugar skull represents a deceased individual and their name is often inscribed on the forehead of the skull. Sugar art dates back to the 17th century when Italian missionaries visited the New World. Mexicans had very little money at that time and learned from Catholic friars how to make decorations out of sugar.
