Rituals commemorating the lives of dead ancestors have been performed by Mesoamerican civilizations for at least 3,000 years. In the pre-Colombian era, it was quite typical for families to keep skulls as trophies and then display them during rituals symbolizing death and rebirth.
But if you don’t happen to have any real skulls lying around to display this Día de los Muertos, don’t worry -- these Day of the Dead toppers will make grand decorations in their stead! They’re decorated just like festive sugar skulls, but are, unfortunately, a lot less edible. However, they make up for this one downfall by carrying with them a tube… a tube filled with tiny, skull-shaped sweets! In rainbow hues, these candies make for the crunchiest, most colorful way to celebrate this year’s Day of the Dead! (Unless you plan on painting and eating real skulls, that is.)
Tube Height: 19 Inches
Display box contains 12 Day of the Dead Candy Toppers.
