While I’m excited to see the creative and adorable costumes this year I am also bracing myself for the yearly frustration that comes with costumes that culturally appropriate or are downright racist. I wish this phenomenon would go away and that I didn’t have to warn people but somehow it continues and I’m hoping that’s simply because people aren’t given stern warnings around it.
Day of the Dead (or Dia de Los Muertos) is a happy holiday. Families gather together to remember their loved ones who have died generally celebrate life and the afterlife. We created these blocks to decorate for the Day of the Dead.
