I'm not a fan of Halloween, but I sure love what these sweet sugar skulls stand for. In the Mexican culture, it was a way to honor those who had passed, but most especially the children. They believe that the gates of heaven are opened at midnight on October 31, and the spirits of all deceased children (angelitos) are allowed to reunite with their families for 24 hours. On November 2, the spirits of the adults come down to enjoy the festivities that are prepared for them. The Sugar Skull is the symbol for this Mexican Holiday.
