It’s so disrespectful when white people do this. Dia de Los Muertos ( day of the dead) is a day that holds so much importance to us. We spends days preparing, making alters, food, etc. For our deceased loved ones. When I see white people decorating with sugar skulls or have “day of the dead” themed objects it’s so upsetting. Y’all don’t see how sacred this is to us. If you’re using it as decoration, that’s all it is to you. Decoration. You take our beliefs, and traditions and use it spice up your living room.
