Even if you don’t have Hispanic roots, you’ve probably heard about Dia de los Muertos, which is translated as “the Day of the Dead.” Primarily celebrated in Central America, South America, and the Catholic world, it starts Nov. 1 when the angelitos-spirits of the children lost-come back to earth to be with their families. It continues through Nov. 2. The return of the dead sets into motion celebrations that draw many of their traditions from pre-Hispanic, Aztec harvest rituals that included fires, incense, costumes of animal skin, images of the dead, ceramic offerings, personal goods, flowers, food, drink, and more. The rich traditions of the Day of the Dead come alive with this ultimate coloring book, which includes vibrant images and ornate designs, including mariachi, a matador, a sugar skull, parades, cemeteries, a butterfly, and more. Whether you’re seeking to learn more about your Hispanic heritage or simply want to learn about a fascinating celebration, you’ll enjoy these thrilling adventures. So grab your favorite colors, and explore the essence of Dia de los Muertos.
