Hot Chocolate (caliente) and other goodies were on the menu as everyone in attendance made masks and other decorations for the Day of the Dead altar in honor of this annual occasion.
Day of the Dead is a Mexican celebration that begins on October 31 and ends November 2nd. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember loved ones who have died and to help support their spiritual journey. Traditionally, an altar is made and family members place food, drinks, photos, and candles on the altar to honor the souls of their loved ones who have passed away. Skulls made from sugar, and other skeleton imagery, is also traditional for Day of the Dead.
Students brought in photos, candles, and food offerings to be placed on the altar.
