Celebrate Día de Muertos

The Day of the Dead  (Día de Muertos or Día de los Muertos) is a holiday traditionally celebrated on November 1 and 2.  It largely originated in Mexico where it is mostly observed, but also in other places, especially by people of Mexican heritage. It is observed as a holiday of joyful celebration rather than mourning.

Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)
The Day of the Dead (or Día de los muertos) is a special Mexican holiday that honors loved ones who have passed away. 

Funny Bones is the story of how the amusing calaveras-skeletons performing various every day or festive activities-came to be. They are the creation of Mexican artist José Guadalupe (Lupe) Posada (1852–1913).He first drew political cartoons and continued to draw cartoons throughout much of his life, but he is best known today for his calavera drawings. They have become synonymous with Mexico’s Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) festival.
