Happy Holidays! Lady Of The Dead Costume for Women for Halloween

”Hallow” – means ”holy” and “een” is an abbreviated form of the word “evening.” The Halloween holiday is celebrated October 31st in the United States.

Additionally, in the USA, the Day of the Dead OR Dia de los Muertos begins October 31 and ends November 2. Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday but many people of Mexican ancestry living in the USA and other parts of the world celebrate the days.

“Day of the Dead combines the ancient Aztec custom of celebrating ancestors with All Souls’ Day, a holiday that Spanish invaders brought to Mexico starting in the early 1500s.” (Source: National Geographic)

In the Catholic religion, All Souls Day is a holy day which is set aside for honoring the dead. It is known by different names such Feast of All Souls, All Hallows’ Day, Hallowmas, Feast of All Saints and All Saints’ Day.

Some treat these occasions with solemnity and seriousness. Others choose to engage in revelry and more lively celebrations. For many, the holiday is not a holy day. It’s just a happy day to do fun things like letting young children dress up in costumes and accompanying them from house to house, Trick-or-Treating Or from car trunk to car trunk, Trunk-or-Treating. Some adults get in on the fun by also dressing up in costumes and having a get together (without the kids).

    I love the Day of the Dead. I have visited San Francisco’s Mission District during Halloween and it is full of Day of the Dead decorations and costumes.
    These Lady of the Dead costumes are very special.
