The Day of the Dead is a celebration which honours loved ones who have passed away. It is a joyful festivity where ancestors are the guests of honour. We were reminded of this holiday when researching hares. Hares have been seen as a symbolic animal for many years, with people associating them with rebirth and resurrection. During the Day of the Dead celebrations, it is as if the families of the loved ones are resurrecting their memory. We have decorated Rememb-hare in bright colourful patterns commonly found on Day of the Dead Calaveras.
