The Lansing Catholic community celebrated Dia De Los Muertos on November 2, which is a Spanish tradition celebrating those who have passed away.
During their Rodzinka learning periods on Tuesday, each house went to different stations as they learned and celebrated the special remembrance.
“I think it is important that students know about different traditions in different cultures,” said Luz Fell, Spanish teacher.
Each station had presentations from Cristo Rey Parishioners who have celebrated Dia De Los Muertos throughout their lives and told the students about how the tradition has lived on through generations in different ways.
“People from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador all celebrate the day of the dead differently,” said Fell. “The importance of the celebration is big since 2008 when Dia de los Muertos was put on the intangible cultural heritage list.”
Students were also told how important this holiday is to certain countries in the world.
