“Día de Todos los Santos” and “Día de los Muertos”

On the evening of Friday, November 3, 2017 the fourth cultural event of the fall semester was headed by the Spanish TA’s. It was about “Día de Todos los Santos” and “Día de los Muertos”. An explanation of “All saints day” (Spainish and Puerto Rican celebration) and “The Day of the dead” (Méxican celebration) was provided to the students. The students interacted with a Mexican altar and they were introduced to its different elements. The altar was dedicated to the victims of natural disasters in Puerto Rico, the Caribbean and México and the students participated in this activity by reading it. At the end of the event the students tasted the traditional pan de muerto (bread dead), tamales, huesos de santos and hot chocolate.
