On November the 1st MCL hosted the traditional Hispanic “Festival del Día de Muertos”. The MCL department, Spanish Club students and other members of the Hispanic community worked together to offer a recreation of this festivity in our campus. The program included a tour in the Siceluff Library of the typical activities that take place in the Hispanic world during this day. Visitors had the opportunity to understand part of this celebration by observing the display and listening to the stories told during the event. Attendees were able to see an authentic exhibition that allowed them to visualize and hear about some of the practices done at the schools, at home and at the cemetery. Members of the Hispanic community shared their personal experiences and various ways to celebrate in their home countries such as recipes of the Pan de Muerto, other members performed traditional songs or dances that take place during this day, or brought typical attires of their native towns and explained the significance. The MCL students shared the Calaveritas (humorist poems) they had written in some of their classes, and some Spanish Club members demonstrated their creativity by dressing as the Catrina and reproducing some of the typical crafts for this day.
