The Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places, especially the United States. It is acknowledged internationally in many other cultures. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey.
The holiday is sometimes called Día de los Muertos in Anglophone countries, a back-translation of its original name, Día de Muertos. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico where the day is a public holiday. Prior to Spanish colonization in the 16th century, the celebration took place at the beginning of summer. Gradually, it was associated with October 31, November 1, and November 2 to coincide with the Western Christianity triduum of Allhallowtide: All Saints' Eve, All Saints' Day, and All Souls' Day. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars called ofrendas, honoring the deceased using calaveras, aztec marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts. Visitors also leave possessions of the deceased at the graves.

The boxes used to store the hand poured silver skulls fits them perfectly. The magnetic closures form a strong bond and the finish of the boxes does not detract from the skulls presentation. The only downside is that for their size, they are a bit pricey, but if you want to display them the cost is not exorbitant, so I recommend them.

No buyers remorse at all - 100% worth it! This wood gift box is well constructed and highlights the 2oz sugar skull perfectly. Not a very tight fit, but sit in the box very well. The look of the silver sitting this box made me want to get the whole series. Thanks for offering this awesome box APMEX - Looks great in my collection.
