Dia de los Muertos becomes new tradition at Rosati-Kain


Next week when her friends go to Halloween parties and trick or treating, Vivian Garcia Cruz will be celebrating with her own culture's tradition of honoring the dead.

Garcia Cruz and several of her classmates at Rosati-Kain High School last week set up an altar to celebrate Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), a Mexican tradition to commemorate the lives of deceased loved ones.

The celebration is popular in Mexican culture, and typically lasts several days, beginning on Halloween and concluding on Nov. 2, the feast of All Souls.
