The sugar skull is deeply linked to Mexican culture, given that it forms a key part of DÍa de Muertos celebrations throughout both the country and the world. The sugar skull has also become an increasingly popular Halloween costume and face paint phenomenon for those celebrating this indigenous Mexican holiday. Heres everything you need to know about the sugar skull, a sacred and popular icon.
Sugar skulls have been closely connected with the early-November Day of the Dead celebration since the 18th century. On November 1st, to celebrate the DÍa de los Angelitos, miniature sugar calaveritas are placed on altares to represent the deceased children theyre honoring. On November 2nd, theyre replaced with larger versions to honor older deceased relatives. However, the production of sugar skulls actually began in Mexico in the 17th century, when abundant supplies of sugar were used to produce inexpensive versions of church decorations.
The term sugar skull is now commonly applied to anything that bears the distinct decorations of the originals whether it be a tattoo or a particular style of make-up. A sugar skull tattoo is used to memorialize a deceased loved one in a permanent way, whereas sugar skull make-up is popular among those attending Day of the Dead or (more commonly in countries outside Mexico) Halloween celebrations.
