New 'Day of the Dead Barbie' Celebrates Mexico Day



This is Barbie Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead Barbie. The collectible doll, to be released on Thursday, celebrates the annual Mexican festival, at which people honor their departed loved ones.
The $ 75 doll "honors the traditions, symbols and rituals common during this time," says Mattel, a toy company that owns the Barbie brand.

Barbie's long black dress is embroidered with hearts and butterflies, with colorful ruffled sleeves. Her face is painted with a skull – a popular practice during the festival, when the players dress in colorful costumes and hold parades. At the top of the doll's head lies a crown of butterflies and monarch marigolds.

Monarch butterflies usually migrate to Mexico in winter and arrive around the same time as the festival, symbolizing the souls of loved ones who return to visit. Calendula is often used to decorate homes during the holiday.

This year, Dia de los Muertos will be held on November 1 and 2. In addition to parties and parades, families often put up rhinos or altars, with photos of late relatives as well as their favorite food and drink. People also leave images of human skeletons and skulls and other proposals, on roads and in cemeteries.

The holiday was also included in the list of UNESCO for the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2008 and has seen increased visibility in popular culture and media in the United States. The holiday inspired Pixar's Coco movie in 2017, which was hailed as "the movie that Latinos have been waiting for" and went on to win two Academy Awards.

Now, as the holiday approaches, there are signs to celebrate in the US, with sugar skulls on sale and makeup artists reserved.
