Celebrate Día de Los Muertos with MyUS

For many, death is a sad event, but those who celebrate the Day of the Dead have a different perspective. Day of the Dead is a unique holiday for celebrating death and life simultaneously. It's about viewing death as a natural conclusion and a welcomed part of life. The act of honoring the departed is widely observed around the world. Still, the Day of the Dead is unique in its traditions, including the ofrenda, the meaning of life and death, the use of Calaveras, the style influenced by La Catrina, and, more recently, the street festivities. It is unlike any other holiday in which grieving is replaced by celebration.

Join in the celebrations by spending this day together with your loved ones. And if you live far away from your friends and family, surprise them with meaningful gifts to show that you are with them spiritually. 

With MyUS, you can shop in US stores internationally and have your items delivered to your (or your loved ones') doorstep worldwide. Get everything you love from the USA with one easy checkout! Add items from multiple stores to your MyUS Shopping cart, and benefit from the lowest international shipping rates.
