Obsession: Sugar Skulls
My first memory of sugar skulls was in 7th grade Spanish class when we dedicated a day to celebrate “Dia De Los Muertos” (Day of the Dead). We got to decorate sugar skulls, make traditional Mexican desserts and created makeshift graves for famous deceased Mexican people (my group had Roberto Clemente, the baseball player. Wow, I have a great memory).
To this day, I find sugar skulls so beautiful. I know skulls are typically portrayed as creepy or gothic, but sugar skulls are colorful, artistic and usually adorned with flowers. I even own a tank top from H&M with a gorgeous sugar skull print on it. Since the Day of the Dead is coming up in a month, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite sugar skulls items I’ve been seeing around.
