This weekend is the annual Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead celebration, it’s a time to honor family members and loved ones who have passed away.  The use of brightly painted skulls and dressed up skeletons is a popular theme during the the day of the dead and there are lots of stamp companies with Day of the Dead images.
