Hubbard High School Spanish Club celebrates Day of the Dead

Hubbard High School’s Spanish Club traveled to Tiffany's Banquet Hall to celebrate the Day of the Dead. Students rotated between different cultural stations, which included learning Spanish dances and making a traditional Day of the Dead craft. The Day of the Dead takes place throughout Mexico and other Spanish-speaking countries from October 31 through November 2. 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.
