After living in the States all these years and celebrating the local festivals with my American friends I can say I enjoy a few of the festivals more that the others. Dia de los Muertos which in English means Day of the Dead has become close to my heart. I am from Tucson where the Mexican community thrives and celebrates the day ever year on a huge scale participated by over 150,000 locals. I love everything about this festival - the masks, the sugar skulls, the costumes, the make-up, the parades and of course the colors that make even the skulls look so fabulous.
It's a little early to be talking about the Day of the Dead but When I came across the new collection by World Market I thought I share. The collection offers plates and mugs in owl, cat and skull shapes in bright orange and black. Also, there are napkins, pillows, candle holder, ornaments and coloring book.
