Day of the Dead

Learning about Día de los muertos or Day of the Dead, helps us understand other cultures and celebrations.  Many people confuse this celebration with Halloween.  Day of the dead is a time for families to remember their loved ones by making altars, decorating their homes with flowers, favorite foods, candles and pictures of the deceased.  Most families celebrate on November 1st and 2nd.  They may take food to the cemeteries and clean the tombs, light candles and sing songs.  Students made some fun crafts to celebrate this fiesta.
