Los Novios legend card reads... Dia de Los Muertos or Day of the Dead is a joyful celebration meant to honor our departed loved ones and is still practiced today in Mexico, Latin America and some parts of the United States. The holiday reminds us that life is short, our loving relationships are paramount and the spirits of the dead are always with us. El Novio’s boutonnière and La Novia’s bouquet and dress are adorned with cempasúchitl, a bright orange marigold whose scent guides souls back to their homes and loved ones. As the bride and groom prepare to marry and spend the rest of their days together they enthusiastically proclaim, “Hasta que la muerte nos separe.” Los Novios skeletons or calacas are meant to depict a joyful and active afterlife taking the popular quote “till death do us part” to the next level.
