On Wednesday, November 7, Spanish club celebrated El Día de Los Muertos, a traditional Hispanic festival that has assimilated into American culture. El Día de Los Muertos directly translates to “The Day of The Dead”, and occurs from October 31 to November 2. It is a celebration of life and death, particularly focusing on the memorializing of family members that have passed. In their last meeting, they made clay skulls, a common decoration during El Día de Los Muertos representing death. They painted them with bright colors to indicate a more positive take on death. Meetings are only open to members of the Spanish club so be sure to join Spanish club next year!
