Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places, especially the United States. It is acknowledged internationally in many other cultures. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey.
Although the Mexican Sugar Skulls are for celebrating the Holiday, the unique look of them has cause them to become a fashion statement.
The Biker culture helped to popularize skulls, generally in black and white. But the Mexicans have much cooler looking skulls that integrate brighter colors. The Blue Mexican Sugar Skull is an embroidered patch that can be ironed on or sewed on to anything from trucker caps, t-shirts, book bags, or even sports bras.
This is a cheap embroidered patch that can be used to decorate or spruce up almost any item you want, except jock straps. An embroidered patch on a jock strap is just stupid.
Embroidered Mexican Sugar Skull Patches can be found in many different colors and sizes.
The 2015 James Bond film, Spectre, the opening sequence featured a Day of the Dead parade in Mexico City. At the time, no such parade took place in Mexico City; one year later, due to the interest in the film and the government desire to promote the pre-Hispanic Mexican culture, the federal and local authorities decided to organize an actual “Día de Muertos” parade through Paseo de la Reforma and Centro Historico on 29 October 2016, which was attended by 250,000 people.
