Dia de los Muertos at SAC

Add to Calendar

The Mortuary Science Department will host Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) activity sessions on Thursday, Nov. 1 in the Loftin Student Center, Fiesta Room.  Sessions will be held at 8, 9:25, and 10:50 a.m.

Activities include making papel picado, sugar skulls, and erecting an altar.

Papel picado literally means 'punched' or 'perforated' paper. This traditional cut paper folk art is found throughout Mexico and the former colonies of Spain as well as in the folk traditions of many other countries.

Sugar skulls are a traditional folk art from Mexico used to celebrate Day of the Dead. Mounds of colorful sugar skulls are sold by vendors in village markets during the week preceding the holiday.
