The Día de los Muertos is a special celebration in many Spanish-speaking countries, Mexico being the most popular. The celebration of honoring families’ beloved dead ancestors and pets begins on 01 November and ends on 02 November. It is believed during this time, dead ancestors are able to return to visit the living. On 01 November, 2021, Ironwood Area Schools’ 8th grade Spanish student, Olivia Salazar, gave a presentation on the Día de Muertos and how her family celebrates each year to all of the Spanish classes. With the amazing support and collaboration from Mr. John Ursini and his cafeteria staff and a generous donation from Walmart, all Spanish students were able to try two different drinks; Mexican hot chocolate and Agua Fresca with strawberries. Students were also able to try many different Mexican candies, cookies, and Day of the Dead bread with the wonderful donations from Olivia’s grandmother and the Spanish Club. Candies ranged from extra hot turned sweet fruit, salt and lemon powder, salt and chili powder, stone ground flavored chocolates, 2-flavored candy that tastes like Kinder egg filling, Marzipan, and the Mexican version of Snickers and Mounds candy bars. Señora Cayer Mott's thoughts about the day were, “It’s great to see my students willing to try new foods that they probably would never choose to try on their own. Hearing many of them liked the treats, drinks, and bread is a great feeling. They aren’t exposed to much, if any, Hispanic food in our area and we were able to offer them some and also include a very important celebration on the same day. Culture is an integral part of learning a language.”
