Día de los Muertos

This year, The Day of the Dead is celebrated on Monday Nov. 2nd. We learned about this cultural celebration and how it is a holiday celebrated in Mexico and elsewhere associated with the Catholic celebrations of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day.


We learned that the festivities are colourful and joyful and celebrate the life of loved ones who have already passed away. Many Mexican families will place candles, photos, food offerings, and more at the grave sites of their loved ones. Many people dress up as skeletons, attend parades, gather in prayer, and enjoy plenty of music and dancing.

 

Last week, we created our own versions of the Calavera which means “skull.” We used a paper plate, markers, colourful stickers and flowers. Check out our artwork!

Feliz Día de los Muertos!
