Profesora Andeliz’s Spanish IV class celebrated El Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead), a Mexican celebration, is a day to celebrate, remember and prepare special foods in honor of those who have departed. It is believed that the spirit of the departed visit their families on October 31 and leave on November 2.
In order to celebrate, the families make altars and place ofrendas (offerings) of food such as pan de muerto baked in shapes of skulls and figures, candles, yellow marigolds known as cempazuchitl and most importantly a photo of the departed soul is placed on the altar.
