Feliz dia de los muertos

Hola a todos. Feliz dia de los muertos.

Hello everyone! Happy Day of the Dead.

Day of the Dead is a celebration celebrated throughout Central and South America, especially in Mexico. It is a day to celebrate those who have gone before us. 

The main symbol of Day of the Dead is the skeleton. The skeletons look much different than those we are used to. They are dressed and have smiles on their faces symbolizing their wonderful afterlife.



Another thing that you will see lots of are altars made to honor the dead. The altars usually include a picture of the deceased person, candles, flowers, incense and the person's favorite foods all to guide the spirits home. 

Below are a few pictures of our Day of the Dead projects this week. We are learning about the cultural differences between Halloween and Day of the Dead, the importance of the holiday for Hispanic people, and the yearly traditions.
