Why Is That Food On The Altar?
Sugar skulls, tamales and spirits (the alcoholic kind) — these are the offerings, or ofrendas, you might find on altars built this time of year to entice those who’ve passed to the other side back for a visit. These altars in homes and around tombstones are a tradition originating in central Mexico.
