Celebrating the Day of the Dead with sugar skulls
Mexican culture remembers deceased relatives with treats, trinkets on alters
Academies of Discovery at Da Vinci fifth-graders answer questions in Spanish for teacher Ruby Castro following a short video on the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos during class Tuesday morning.
When Connie Rodriguez was a child living in Mexico, she said she felt a little afraid of the skulls and altars she saw around her home and town at the end of October. Her grandmother told her not to worry, Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) was a happy time, a holiday to be excited about. The holiday is celebrated throughout Mexico for two days and honors the memories of loved ones who have died.
