UMS Students Collaborate In Celebration Of Día de los Muertos

UMS CORE and Al Exito students collaborated together in the creation of the altar, the “ofrenda” table for “Día de los Muertos” (Day of the Dead). Day of the Dead is widely observed in Mexico, but is also celebrated in other Latin American countries, on November 1st and 2nd. In Mexican culture, the altar usually has traditional dishes, candles, pictures of families and friends who have passed away, colorful skulls and decorations. The Day of the Dead is a time for families and friends to gather and remember joyful memories of those close to them who have passed. Thank you to our UMS students for sharing this special tradition!
