Día de los Muertos and Ofrendas by Payton Batchelor
On Friday, November 1 the AP Spanish classes honored “Día de los Muertos”, also known as “Day of the Dead”, which is celebrated throughout Mexico and among many people of Mexican heritage. The point of this holiday is for the families to celebrate and remember the lives of their loved ones who have passed. The students gave presentations over various important people in Spanish culture, such as Selena Quintanilla and Juanes, and made ofrendas, altars, to honor these people which is the tradition for this holiday. In the below picture, Seniors Christianna Lykins and Katy Shaffer are presenting their altar to the class over Frida Kahlo.
