The kids brought in food, we built some fake altars, we are watching some you tube videos over La Llorona, La calavera Catrina, La isla de las munecas, and I am showing the kids some videos/pictures of when I visited the Mummy Museum in Mexico.
We have been watching lots of videos over el dia the past month so they have practically seen them all. LOL
Anyways, today is a class day celebrating and learning how the hispanic cultural deals with death, celebration of life, and just overall culture. I think they have learned we are VERY similar and the curiosity of life after death is a universal concern/interest for ALL cultures!
I love this day! It's one of my favorite holidays (American and Mexican) and I'm so blessed to celebrate it with my kiddos!
Here is a pic of my annual tradition "Dead Makeup"
I always have such a hard time being "dead"/"scary"/"serious"...so here is a pic of me smiling. Yes, I kind of look weird and you can laugh!
Everyone have a safe and festive holiday whether you're celebrating Halloween, Day of the Dead, or both.
