Bradford's Cultural Celebrations

Bradford's Cultural Celebrations
Posted on 11/10/2021

Bradford kicked off the month of November with two cultural celebrations:

Dia De Los Muertos
On November 2, Bradford observed Dia de Los Muertos, or The Day of The Dead, as known in English. The day is designated to celebrate and remember family members who have passed. The Hispanic holiday helps families feel like they never really left by keeping their memory alive with their pictures and stories. Students learned vocabulary and history about Dia de Los Muertos and were given the opportunity to bring in photos of loved ones to display on the shrine in the school hallway that also included traditional artwork. See photos below.

Diwali, the Festival of Lights
Diwali, the festival of lights, is the most awaited and the most celebrated festival of India. This wonderful festival is the celebration of five days. On the third day of the celebratory occasion, the key rituals of the Diwali festival take place. Lighting of Diyas and candles all around the house, worshipping the Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha to summon health and wealth. "This year a handful of staff members worked on some creative ideas to celebrate this holiday. Among those ideas were decorating a showcase to inform and enlighten staff and students about this wonderful festival," said Principal Frances Aboushi. “Thank you, Ms. Bangs, for the beautiful Diwali decorations your class submitted, and shout out to Mr. Keys and his all-star student Kavya Pasala for spearheading this amazing endeavor."
