Dia de Los Muertos, originally known as Dia de Muertos, is a predominantly Mexican holiday celebrated by Hispanic cultures throughout North, Central, and South America. Though it is now most commonly associated with the holiday of Halloween, the Day of the Dead was once found on a much different part of the calendar each year. Today, 15 oz Silver Skull of the Dead silver statues are available to you online at Silver.com.

Prior to the Spanish colonization of Central and South America, Dia de Muertos was actually celebrated by the cultures of Central America and beyond in the early summer months. It gradually became associated with Western Christian holidays surrounding what is known sa Allhallowtide. Those celebrations include All Saints’ Eve, All Saints’ Day, and All Souls’ Day.
Today, many Mexican families celebrate Dia de Muertos around the same time as Halloween. The day marks a time of positive reflection rather than mournful sorrow. Those who have been lost to the living world are celebrated with joyful music, feasts, and parades. Mexican families often spend the day together, dining on various foods (including those meals enjoyed by the deceased family member) and then conclude the day gathering at their loved one’s grave.
