The Day of the Dead, or El Día de los Muertos, is a series of commemorative days dedicated to those who have died. It is celebrated generally between Halloween, Oct. 31 through Nov. 2, and coincides with the Catholic holy days of All Saints (Nov. 1) and All Souls (Nov. 2). As we remember our loved ones, The World Culture Club and students from Mr. Reller's Spanish classes created an "ofrenda" or altar with offering for those who have gone before us.
The Day of the Dead is an occasion to offer prayers and to remember those who have gone before us. The holiday is seen both as a religious devotion and identity to Latinos that spans across the Americas and beyond.
