In Sarah’s 3rd class we learned about Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). We created sugar skulls in and we are very proud of them.
The celebration originated in central and southern Mexico. The celebrations begin at midnight on October 31st. Families who celebrate Dia de los Muertos make colourful altars in their homes in honour of their deceased loved ones, and the altars are decorated with flowers, candles, their loved one’s favourite food and pan de muerto (a slightly sweet bread specifically made for this time). This is a reflective and lively get-together honouring the deceased back to celebrate life and enjoy all the human things again.
