Dia de los Muertos Cheshire by Flying-Fox Dia de los Muertos Cheshire by Flying-Fox
The Dia de los Muertos embodies everything about the
mexican holiday of the dead! Complete with sugar skull heads and a
huge bushel of marigolds borne on his back, this cheshire wanders
around the gravesites of loved ones, sometimes terrifying and tricking
the living that come to visit. The Dia de los Muertos ensures that the
day of the dead is a grand affair, and anyone who is not participating
at their fullest is sure to get a nasty trick coming their way! This
chesire loves to party, and the best way to make sure he does not take
out his merriment on you is surely to leave him two of his favorite
things: a sugar skull wrapped in a wreath of the brightest marigolds.
