Day of the Dead Craft Party
"The Day of the Dead (El Día de los Muertos or All Souls' Day) is a holiday celebrated in Mexico to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. Celebrated on November 2nd, traditions include building private altars honoring the deceased, using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts." It might sound a little morbid, if you aren't familiar with the holiday, but it's a major cause of celebration in the Southwest.
