Ball High students celebrated El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) by decorating their rooms and hallway with festive skeletons, coffins, posters, pictures and tombstones.

People who celebrate the El Dia de los Muertos decorate tables at their homes with the pictures of their deceased members of their families and provided the spirits with their favorite foods, candles and flowers. Family members and friends leave possessions of the deceased at the grave sites and the altars are usually decorated with flowers, candles (pan de muerto), ceramic skulls.

In Mexico drinks are placed on the altar to quench the thirst of the dead after their long journey back home. It is a day when special care is provided to their relative’s graves. The family visits the graves, dine, sing and tell their favorite stories about those who have passed into the next world.
