Holiday Traditions
The holidays are approaching and the students at FSE are all catching the Holiday Tradition fever. Nayeli R. (9) says that her favorite holiday tradition is Dia de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead). For those who have no clue what the Day of the Dead is, it is a Mexican holiday where families welcome back the souls of their deceased relatives for a brief reunion that includes food, drinks and celebration. Nayeli states,”I never go out of town, but when the Day of the Dead festival arrives I do go down there and have as much fun as possible.” The day of the Dead is November 2nd every year. As Dia de los Muertos leaves, other holidays arrive. There is Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzza, New Years, and Valentines Day. These holidays are very important to others as well as The Day of the Dead is for Nayeli. --by Tylynne Gipson
