Day of the Dead at the library

Nov 1 and 2 are Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) celebrations in Mexico and other Hispanic countries. Ms Jones and Mr. O’Rourke’s Spanish classes participated in traditional Day of the Dead activities to honour their ancestors and famous celebrities who have passed away. Students made paper flowers, decorated skulls, and constructed altares for family members and celebrities. The altares were decorated with ofrendas such as cookies for Bob Marley and pan de muertos, a bread shaped into skulls and bones. day of dead2
