        In class over the next two weeks we will be learning about Día de los Muertos, which is a major holiday in the Spanish speaking world (in many countries outside of Mexico). Over these two weeks, we will be focusing on activities and traditions related to this holiday. This will also be a good lead into comparing this holiday with Halloween.
