Now this was a fun box! Mexico doesn’t celebrate Hallowe’en, instead they have their own festival – The Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos). It’s a carnival of costumes, colours and skulls, so this box contained all of that, from colourful glass bead strands to skull pendants, a howlite skull strand to plated red rose beads.
