Day of the Dead Altar


Gabriela Sanchez a Junior, taking Spanish Class as an elective, did a collaborative project on Mexican Altars for people that had passed away. Students had 2 weeks to work on this project, and it was due on November 7, 2016.
Gabi explained "We have been able to explore different culture, and interact with different traditions, this is important because we can educate our peers about Hispanic culture".
 Catherine Avila, also a Spanish language student added, "I learned a lot about the Mexican Tradition El Dia de Los Muertos". This tradition that is celebrated in Mexico is about the Day of the Dead, about appreciating important people in your life that have passed into the afterlife.
The Day of the Dead is always an important day to celebrate because it is important to recognize and remember the important souls in our lives.
