The gardens and courtyard of Christel House Mexico (CHMX) were transformed into tombs and altars for the annual “Día de los Muertos” or “Day of the Dead” celebration. The holiday is a culturally significant tradition in Mexico, honoring those who have passed. All grades participated in the festivities, with many students and even some teachers and staff dressing in elaborate costumes and make-up. An impressive “ofrenda” was created by art students, parent volunteers and alumni, who teamed up after school hours to build the colorful shrine. Younger children especially enjoyed the festivities while learning the historical significance behind the traditions of the holiday.
