High school Spanish Club celebrates Day of the Dead

On November 1, approximately 150 students in Hubbard High School’s Spanish Club traveled to Tiffany's Banquet Hall in Brookfield to celebrate the Day of the Dead.

According to Spanish teacher Anna Badurick, Day of the Dead takes place in Mexico and other Spanish-speaking countries from October 31 through November 2nd. The holiday celebrates and honors the lives of deceased loved ones. The holiday is a time for people to remember those who have passed and to pass down their legacy to younger generations. Villagers often spend large sums of money to build ofrendas (altars that contain traditional items, pictures and prized possessions of the deceased), decorate their homes/grave sites and prepare elaborate meals and pastries.

Students were separated into three large groups and rotated between different cultural stations. One station consisted of a feast of traditional paella, steak/chicken fajitas, nachos and all of the trimmings. Another station provided students with salsa and merengue dance lessons instructed by professional dancers from Fred Astaire. At the third station, students had the opportunity to create a traditional Day of the Dead luminary.
