READING: FESTIVALS – DAY OF THE DEAD
Festival: Day of the Dead in Mexico
The Day of the Dead, celebrated between October 31st and November 2nd, is a celebration in which Mexicans remember and honour their deceased loved ones. Though it may sound gloomy or morbid, it’s not. It’s a festive and colourful holiday. Mexicans visit cemeteries, decorate the graves and spend time there – in the presence of their deceased friends and family members. They also make elaborately decorated altars in their homes to welcome the spirits.

LISTENING: CHEESE ROLLING FESTIVAL
