On Wednesday, November 2nd, parents were able to observe a sharing from the Grades program to honor loved ones who are no longer with us, guided by Maestra Moreno.
Dia de los Muertos is a celebration that comes from the Mexican Tradition and has its origin in pre-Hispanic times where the cult of death was one of the basic elements of culture; The Day of the Dead in the indigenous vision implies the transitory return of the souls of the deceased, who return home, to the world of the living, to live with their families and to nourish themselves with the essence of the food that is offered to them on the altars, placed in their honor.
In this celebration of the Day of the Dead, death does not represent an absence but a living presence; death is a symbol of life that materializes on the altar offered.
Every year many families place offerings and altars decorated with marigold flowers, papel picado, sugar skulls, pan de muerto, mole, or some dish or things that their relatives liked.
Thanks to the entire community for participating with photos and offerings that help to create a beautiful assembly, remembering and honoring those who are no longer here. The celebration was magical.
