"Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased, using sugar skulls" (This is intriguing!), "marigolds" (The official flower of the Day of the Dead), "and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts."
If I were the one being celebrated, there would be all the chocolate skulls and In-N-Out milkshakes you could eat while jammin' to Michael Jackson dance music turned up LOUD.
I'm just sayin'.
