Spanish Project: Day of the Dead
Transcript of Spanish Project: Day of the Dead
When their efforts failed, they moved the holiday to All Saints' Day (Nov. 1 and Nov. 2) in order to make the celebration more Christian. Today Day of the Dead is still
celebrated in Mexico, parts of the US
and Central America. One of the main parts of the celebration is to build an altar dedicated to a deceased family member. The altars are mainly decorated with:
Food Calacas are wooden skull masks.
They're used for decoration and worn during the celebrations. The main food associated with Day of the Dead is Sugar Skulls. After spending time at the altars, people will visit cemeteries.
There they decorate the graves of their loved ones and sit on picnic blankets enjoying the favorite foods of their loved ones. Sources: http://www.azcentral.com/ent/dead/articles/dead-history.html http://www.wikihow.com/Celebrate-Day-of-the-Dead-(Dia-De-Los-Muertos)
