Every year on the Day of Skulls, Bolivia, South America, held a spooky parade featuring real human skulls. For many, this sounds like a scene from a horror movie, but for the residents of Bolivia’s their traditional holiday. In this day to decorate the skull with flowers, give food, cigarettes, alcohol, etc. Quite an eerie sight.
Bolivians believe that a person has seven souls, and one of them remains in the skeleton after burial. When the other souls went to heaven, the remains of the dead are dug, skulls bring home and start to take care of them. If not taken care of, the skull can bring misfortune to the family, cause a bad harvest, and even destroy the family. But if a skull is properly taken care of, the skull has family patronage. Once a year, take out the skull on the street and go with them, usually at the city cemetery.
