Celebrating The Day Of The Dead at Holy Rosary School with Señora Brodahl

What is the EL DIA DE LOS MUERTOS?

The Day of the Dead is sometimes explained as a Mexican or Latin American version of Halloween, but it really is not. El Día de los Muertos, which is celebrated two days from November 1st to November 2nd preparations start on October 31st.

It is a time when people remember their loved ones who have passed away. It is believed that on those days the souls of the dead return to visit. We honor them and welcome them back by creating ofrendas, altars on which offerings of their favorite foods, photos, belongings and other items are set out for their return. In Mexico and other countries that commemorate this time, it is customary to also visit and clean the graves of loved ones. Some people also play music in the cemetery. The Day of the Dead is also a time when death is recognized, and even celebrated, as a natural part of the cycle of life, a reminder that the dead are always still with us, and that death is not something to be feared it is a time to celebrate your loved that have passed away.

This month is my favorite time of the year to share with the students at Holy Rosary this beautiful celebration that is so special to the Latin American culture. The students will be reading books watching documentaries on the day of the dead, movie, singing and creating different crafts for each grade level. We will be making marigold flowers with tissue paper, candles with cards stock paper, decorating skeletons and skulls, creating books, cemeteries, making sugar skulls trying Pan de Muerto and chocolate caliente.

All the student’s activities will be put on an altar in the hallway.

I invite you to see our beautiful altar on November 1 and 2nd. . If you would like to see your child’s great art of El Día de los Muertos in the hallway close to the math lab. at school.
