Kaitlyn Hancock and Shaniece Morris

Dia de los Muertos is day of remembering lost loved ones. It is celebrated on November 1st and ends on November 2nd. This day is a day of remembrance for those who have lost a family member, friend, etc. The Spanish classes at PHS all came together and created a beautiful display of how this day is celebrated. Here is how they replicated this day of remembrance:


This is how PHS Spanish students represented how the cemeteries in Mexico are decorated for The Day of the Dead.




Around the time of Day of the Dead, decorated skulls are seen everywhere and they are a staple decoration around Mexico during that time.


Ofrendas are the offerings placed in people’s homes created by family members to remember those who have passed. They are intended to welcome the deceased to the altar.



Decorated skulls are seen all around Mexico as a decoration for the Day of the Dead.


Pan de Muerto, also known as Bread of the Dead, is the traditional bread served for Dia de los Muertos.

Dia de los Muertos is an amazing day filled with good food, good music, and beautiful decorations. The Spanish Classes at PHS all came together to beautifully replicated how this day is celebrated.
