LOGAN Logan High School students participated in the twenty-seventh annual Day of the Dead program.
Logan High School Spanish teacher Andrea Santos explains the significance of Day of the Dead, or el Día de los Muertos.
“It’s not a Mexican Halloween,” Santos said. “ You celebrate loved ones who have passed. It’s a memorial day.”
It takes place November first and second. Typically, it is a Mexican celebration, according to Ms. Santos, but is celebrated in many Latino countries.
“It is a Memorial Day. We built a memory wall for loved ones passed,”
Students researched and prepared Latino dishes for a buffet style dinner at Logan High Thursday night. Spanish class students also recited works of Latino poets and created memorial artwork for lost loved ones that made up the Memorial Wall.
