Hello, friends! The time of year is upon us where we start to scramble for last minute costumes for those upcoming themed parties. Now to spare you a night of minor embarrassment, we want to remind you of the differences between Halloween and Day of the Dead festivities, because the last thing you want is to go to your friend's Dia de los Muertos celebration dressed up as Harley Quinn.
Here's the breakdown...
The primary difference here is how much more personal day of the dead celebrations usually are compared to Halloween. For these celebrations, drinks are usually based on what the loved ones' favorites used to be and are then drank in honor of them. Costumes are not worn here, though sometimes faces are painted similar to the designs seen on sugar skulls.
Regardless, drinks and lively festivities play a big role in both holidays! To get ideas of which drinks work best for either event, check out our Monthly Features!
