Day of the Dead

We followed up Halloween with the Mexican holiday, Dia de Muertos, or Day of the Dead. Emma's school hosted the party as a way to highlight the culture of a large part of the children who attend her school.

There were traditional Aztec dancers.

Ofrenda: a table full of flowers, fruits, candies, and food to welcome the beloved dead.
Emma holds up Willa, who wouldn't/couldn't leave the sugar skulls alone.

And calacas, or skull masks.
Enoch holds up his creation.
