Kathy Cano-Murillo explains the meaning of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) and how this traditional Mexican holiday is celebrated. She explains the importance of having an altar to honor the dead and shows how to make one out of a decorated cigar box, embellished with candles, photos, and other mementos. She whips up a felt banner and some scary, but yummy white chocolate sugar skulls. Kathy folds up tissue paper into festive flowers, which are used for colorful decoration.
