Skull

The skull is one of the most characteristic symbols of Mexico and is used as a representation of the Day of the Dead. Legend has it that the skulls were in charge of receiving the newcomers from the world of the living in the underworld. The newcomers, at their arrival, were surprised to see that the happiest skulls had a bright and unusual color on their faces and bones, and the others, not so cheerful, had white faces as they always imagined. After settling in, the newcomers could not hold back their curiosity and asked why these skulls that looked so happy had colored bones. The answer left them stunned: these skulls were those in whose life had shared so much love that it had marked them even in their bones. That love, they took with them on their way to the next life, which explained the joy with which, even in the underworld, the skulls spent their days.

May these skulls remind us that life is only one and that we are here to live intensely and with all the love that we can. Because when we leave this world, we will leave a legacy behind. It is up to us whether this has been a legacy of love.
