The Day of the Dead - a short guide

Help

Pupils from Colegio Newland in Queretaro, Mexico, present a short guide to 'Dia de los Muertos' - The Day of the Dead.

The Day of the Dead is a uniquely Mexican tradition which occurs every year on November 1 when it is believed loved ones come back from the dead every year to spend the day with them.

Colegio Newland pupils will be taking part in a BBC World Class online debate this week and answering questions from schools around the world.
