EDISON, NJ -- Each year, students taking Spanish classes at The Wardlaw + Hartridge School in Edison study and learn about the colorful and festive way Mexicans celebrate El Día de los Muertos – “The Day of the Dead.” This topic has proved to be meaningful to understand not only how people in Mexico and other Hispanic countries honor their beloved who passed away, but also how other cultures remember they deceased ones.

On El Día de los Muertos, Mexicans honor the life of their ancestors and loved ones who passed away. This celebration takes place annually on Nov. 1-2 when Mexicans celebrate with a tradition full of decorations, parades, music and food.

Students and teachers created an exhibition including altars, crafts, explanations, and QR codes with links to information and videos.
