Spanish students learn about Day of the Dead custom

11/8/2012
Traditions vary from region to region, but generally families gather at cemeteries to tend and decorate the graves of their departed loved ones, remember them by telling stories, eating their favorite foods, and dancing in their honor. Many families build altars at home, decorated with flowers and food, especially pan de muerto, “bread of the dead.” A festive and social occasion, the holiday welcomes the return of those who have died and recognizes the human cycle of life and death.
