Costumes are important however you’d not be surprised to learn that eating is a major part of this celebration as well. A Day of the Dead party should include more than the ubiquitous sugar cookies painted like skulls, that you’re probably familiar with, but include feasting on traditional favorites such as tamales, mole negro, pan de muerto – Day of the Dead bread, calabaza en tacha – candied pumpkin, calaveras de azucar – sugar skulls and, of course, Mexican hot chocolate to ward of the chill of the evening.
