(Photos below) In honor of Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), students worked together to decorate our middle school campus Ofrenda during Spanish class. They made pan de muerto and sugar skulls then placed photos of family members on it who had passed. Feliz día de los Muertos!
In Mexico, on the Day of the Dead, it’s believed that the border between the spirit world and the real world will dissolve. During this period, the souls of the dead awaken and return to the living world to eat, drink, dance, and play music with their loved ones. The living family members treat the deceased as honored guests in their celebrations and leave their favorite foods and other offerings at gravesites or on the ofrendas built in their homes.« Back to News
