Spanish classes at SOMS students celebrated the Day of the Dead, or Día de los muertos, by making and decorating sugar skulls. Día de los muertos is a festive two-day celebration on November 1-2 when the spirits of passed loved ones return to visit their families.

Ofrendas, or offerings, are set out for the dead to rejuvenate  them after their long journey. The ofrendas include water, toiletries, favorite momentums, and sweets, such as sugar skulls. As Halloween traditions have gained popularity, many children in Latino cultures will go from house to house asking for calaveritas, or these small decorated sugar skulls.
