During the beautiful Dia de los Muertos Mexican celebrations candles are lit to guide the dead's path and journey and towelcome the spirits back to their altars. Marigolds, the yellow-orange flowers, also called cempasúchitl, symbolize death and their strong fragrance also help lead the dead back to their altars.
These gorgeous candles are the perfect accent for your ofrenda, or altar.
