Bolivia's Day Of The Skulls

The remains of Bolivia's dead get to see the light of day once more during the Day of the Skulls, when the skulls of the loved ones are dug up and paraded around town.

They are decorated with flowers and coca leaves, given cigarettes and sunglasses to make them look stylish, and lavished with praise by citizens who believe this celebration makes their afterlife more enjoyable. A celebration of life that centers around the skulls dead loved ones, sounds like a strange way to par-tay!
