Celebrate The Day Of The Dead festivity resplendently as featured in the new Bond film Spectre. A great idea for a masquerade event not only at Halloween but for Day of the Dead masked parties in general. Visually interesting and exciting this celebration honours the dead. For the spirits of dead infants and children, alters are prepared on the 1st November with skull -shaped candy, toys, cherubs and candles. The spirits of dead adults are celebrated on the 2nd November with offerings on lovingly prepared alters of flowers, candles, food and pan de muerto [day of the dead bread], drinks, cigarettes and whatever else pleases the spirits are left for them. At cemeteries on all Hallows Eve [Halloween] vigil is kept until the witching hour when the gates of heaven opens and the deceased are released. Like the parade in the new Bond film, Spectre the spectacle is colourful with painted faces, day of the dead sugar skull imagery . The hair is adorned with flowers, costumes are depicted in the form of skeletons and the sugar skull represents the departed soul. A lot of time is spent preparing the day of the dead costumes and making sugar skull masks.
