Berkley Spanish Students Visit Mexican Town for Día De Los Muertosessential

(BPS Press Release, Nov. 9, 2014)

Señora Farah’s Spanish I students from Norup went to Mexican Town on October 29 to learn and celebrate the holiday Día de los 20141109spanish01berkleystudentsMuertos, or Day of the Dead. The students painted Día de los Muertos tiles at Lisa Luevanos Art Studio while enjoying the traditional Pan de Muerto (bread of the dead) and Mexican hot chocolate and listening to the Mexican folk tale, La Llorona.

The Spanish I students also visited the offices of El Central Newspaper. The students attended a short lecture on the meaning of the holiday, watched a documentary film, and viewed Ofrendas, altars dedicated to people and pets of Mexican Town who had passed away.

The field trip ended with lunch at Los Galanes and a stop for traditional Mexican treats at La Gloria Bakery. On the way home, an unscheduled stop was made to view more Ofrendas on display at Ste. Anne’s Church. The students had a great time.
