In some parts of the world, especially predominantly Christian countries, the 1st and 2nd of November are important dates to remember our departed loved ones. In many countries, this is called the All Saints Day, while in Mexico they call it the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).
On this day of the year, you will have seen many colourful decorations around the cemeteries in Mexico. There are many artistic creations of skeletons, skulls, flowers and parades. Halloween and death are definitely being celebrated and seen at a different light in this part of the world.
Our primary students from Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 learned all about this tradition in their Spanish lessons and to immerse themselves in this Mexican culture, they created some colourful masks and bookmarks.
