Weekly Roundup

Happy Sunday Funday, and first day of November! Did you set your clocks back an hour for daylight savings?

Today is Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). In the United States, is that day better known as the day that inspired Skull Candy Makeup. Earlier, I shared the meaning and history of this Mexican holiday over at our Instagram. So before you break out into your Skull Candy art, learn why, and where it originated from:

Today is #DiadelosMuertos (#DayoftheDead). Before you break out the #SkullCandyMakeup here's the history: #diadelosmuertos is #Mexicanholiday that has been celebrated in Mexico for centuries, and has spread to other parts of Latin America as well as the United States and Europe. It is believed that on the night of October 31, the gates of heaven are opened and the souls of angelitos (children who have passed) roam the earth for the day of November 1. Then, on November 2 the gates open once again and the souls of adults who have died visit as well. The skull is a commonly recognized symbol of the holiday–not just the intricately decorated sugar skull we all think of today, but traditional skulls too. It is from this skull tradition that the increasingly popular #sugaskull #facepainting originated. Celebrators wearing masks during the holiday has evolved and grown into actually painting their own faces. It is seen as a chance to overcome your fear of death, and get in touch with a darker side of yourself. This has often been the role of masks throughout history in every culture around the world–if your real face is hidden, you become a different version of yourself not normally seen.
