Día de los Muertos

Día de los Muertos

The S1 pupils enjoyed hearing about the Mexican tradition of Día de los Muertos this week. The pupils learned that it happens over three days 31 October and the 1 and 2 November. On these dates, the Mexicans believe that the gates between our world and the world of the dead open up and the souls of people who have died can come back and visit their relatives. It is a happy occasion with lots of parties, light, colour and music, as the Mexican people believe in celebrating the life of the person who has passed on, and not mourning their passing.
As the skull is a traditional symbol of this celebration, we coloured our own skull masks and got temporary tattoos of symbols of the fiesta! Qué guay!
