Festival de calaveras

Regular price $13.95

Candles, cut paper, “bread of the dead,” salt, marigold flowers: November has arrived, and with it, the Day of the Dead. The living prepare the altars and the dead embark on the journey, guided by the smoke of the incense. Once a year, the living and the dead meet to celebrate not death, but life. Eight-syllable calaverita verses and a love story take place in this celebration of one of Mexico’s most emblematic holidays. K-Gr 3 GRL N
