Mexican Day of the Dead, Dia De Los Angelitos

Posted on the 01 November 2011 by Bunnysunday

Sugar Skulls, Paper Flowers; Chasing Light, The Golden Hour
Today is Día de los Angelitos, Day of the Little Angels. On this day, dead children are remembered and celebrated with sugar skulls, candles and orange marigolds.

This is not a somber observance but a celebration of a child’s life.

Dia de los Angelitos acknowledges that the spirits of children walk the earth tonight, visiting and communicating with the living.
