Dia de los Muertos — Perspective #1

By: Iliana Gomez, Senior 

Life Academy celebrated Dia de Los Muertos last week. Dia de Los Muertos is a day to celebrate our loved ones who have passed away. November 1 is the day to celebrate when the kids passed away, and November 2 is the day to celebrate the day the adults passed away.

Dia de los Muertos is a day to be happy, not sad. We had a town hall at our school, and there was a play. The play was organized by the Juniors in the Español para Hispano Hablantes (EPH). The play took place in the auditorium.

The play started off with some music and a group of young women dressed as Catrinas with their faces painted. The young men were dressed with button ups and slacks. Their faces painted as well. The guys were sitting around a table, and the girls were walking around them. When the music changed, the guys got up, and they all started dancing. Each young man was dancing with two girls except for one who was dancing with one girl only. Afterwards, they started telling a story of the Day of the Dead, and there was another play for that story.

It all went well, and they did a good job.
