The sweet taste of death
Just as Halloween is the second most popular holiday (next to Christmas) for a majority of folks in the United States, the Day of the Dead is the favorite holiday for most of those in Hispanic cultures. 

Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and visiting the graves of the departed with gifts of their favorite foods and beverages.

So imagine my pleasure when I saw the new Monster High doll revealed today on Monster High's Facebook page.

Meet Skelita Calaveras.

Skelita loves of all things artsy. While Skelita loves to dance, her favorite subject is art (painting rattles her bones)!

Skelita could take down any monster in a sugar skull making contest! They’re her favorite (mine too!) by far.

Ever get that feeling in your bones that something epic is going to happen? Skelita often does, only problem is she has no way of knowing when the event will occur!

Heritage and family are muy importante to our ghoul, Skelita Calaveras. Remembering where you come from is a part of knowing who you are and cultivating your unique personality. 

I couldn't agree more. You go ghoul!
