Union City is a city in Hudson County, New Jersey, United States. According to the 2010 United States Census the city had a total population of 66,455,[6][7][8] reflecting a decline of 633 (-0.9%) from the 67,088 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 9,076 (+15.6%) from the 58,012 counted in the 1990 Census.[14] As of the 2010 Census it was the most densely populated city in the United States,a[›] with a density of 51,810.1 per square mile.[15]

Union City was incorporated as a city by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on June 1, 1925, with the merger of Union Hill and West Hoboken Township.[16] Two major waves of immigration, first of German speakers and then of Spanish speakers, greatly influenced the development and character of Union City. Its two nicknames, "Embroidery Capital of the United States" and "Havana on the Hudson", reflect important aspects of that history. Thousands make a pilgrimage to Union City each year to see the nation's longest running passion play and the annual Cuban Day Parade of New Jersey.

Candy!!! Sugar Skull recipe-try this at home  
Sugar Skulls are a traditional folk art from Southern Mexico used to celebrate Day of the Dead. Mounds of colorful sugar skulls are sold by Indian vendors in open air village markets during the week preceding the holiday. Spirits of the dead are welcomed back to their homes with beautifully decorated altars made by their loved ones. Sugar skulls, marigolds, candles, incense and special foods adorn home altars. Families take the flowers and sugar skulls to the cemetery to decorate the tombs on November 2. Sugar skulls are colorfully decorated with icing, pieces of bright foil, colored sugars and usually bear the name of the deceased loved one being honored. They are easy to make by children and adults, and if kept dry, they can last a year. Make sugar skulls as part of your family tradition to remember your dear, departed loved ones. Time Required: 10 minutes to make the candy doughHere's How:1.    Sift sugar into a large mixing bowl.2.    In another bowl, mix the egg whites, corn syrup and vanilla.3.    Slowly pour the liquid into the powdered sugar. Mix with your hands until a sandy dough forms. 4.    Form dough into a ball. At this point you can continue or you can refrigerate dough for later use.5.    Lightly dust surface with cornstarch as well as your hands. Pinch off a heaping tablespoon of dough and shape it into a skull. 6.    Press the candy sticks into the bottom of each skull.7.    If you're using them, lightly press colored sprinkles into the soft candy. 8.    Let the candy dry overnight.9.    When candy is dry, use the paint brush with food coloring to decorate the skulls. Or you can use frosting (one that will dry hard) with a find tip to decorate them.10.  Hand them out as is, or wrap in a small cellophane bag tied closed with a small ribbon.Tips:1.    The skulls may not dry completely on a humid or rainy day.2.    If you use the molds, you should follow each manufacturer's instructions as some molds only work with certain recipes.3.    The "dough" should be the consistency of damp sand. Just moist enough to hold together. If "dough" is too dry and crumbly, add 1 teaspoon of water at a time to moisten.4.    If "dough" is too moist, add sugar one tablespoon at a time until "dough" is the right consistency.5.    If the candy has trouble drying completely, place in a 125 degree warm oven until dry.What You Need:·         2 1/2 cups sugar·         1 egg white from an extra large egg, or 2 from small eggs·         1 teaspoons light corn syrup·         1 teaspoon vanilla·         Cornstarch, about a half cup, for powdering surface·         Colored sprinkles·         Food coloring·         Fine paint brush·         Colored icing·         Candy sticks (optional)
