Dia de los Muertos and Halloween can often be confused because they are celebrated within very close dates, but in reality they have distinct characteristics. Dia de los Muertos was originally introduced in Mexico with the Aztec Festival of the Dead, but the traditions have been tweaked over the years. Likewise, Halloween originated in Ireland, beginning with the Celtic Festival called “Samhain”. Now, the popular holiday, Day of the Dead, is celebrated from October 31st through November 2nd by visiting the graves of dead friends or family members. People who participate in Dia de los Muertos leave food, candles, incense, a poem, or a picture at the altar to honor the past lives of people they love.
Now it’s both girls and boys trick or treating and dressing up. Halloween and Day of the Dead are alike because the dead comes alive on both event. they both celebrate with skeletons, food, drinks, and graveyard things. But Day of the Dead pays respect to the Dead, leaves flowers, and plants. Dresses up in the dead families clothes on the day.
“A Madea Halloween” movie will be funny, scary, and dramatic. I believe people should go watch this movie because Tyler Perry has a background for making funny and dramatic movies. In the past, he has produced dramatic movies like Madea’s Big Happy Family and Diary of a Mad Black Woman. From the commercial preview, the movie “A Madea Halloween” will be funny because of Madea's funny voice along with her other great character skills that make an audience laugh. Madea persuaded me that the movie would be funny by knocking the clown out on the T.V.
Besides our school, our community was ready to celebrate and honor this day as well. Mt. SAC celebrated the famous and beautiful Hispanic tradition Día de los Muertos festival on November 7th. During the event there were many live performances
One would celebrate Valentine’s Day by giving another person cards and chocolates, right? Wrong. That may be what it is now, but originally, women would line up to be whipped because they thought it would make them fertile. Then, young men would draw the name of a random teenage girl, and they would be a “couple” for the rest of the festival, or longer if it was a good match. Pretty weird, right?
Both stories also contain a gathering of townspeople. In "...Omelas there is music, dance, and special clothing for the festival, whereas in "The Lottery," the women show up "wearing faded house dresses and sweaters." Although Le Guin 's setting seems more festive but all the folks in both stories are coming together for what seems to be entertaining festival. However, I believe the major similarity lies in the shadow of these perfect societies behind all the festivals and happiness there is a dark shadow you notice reading on. The reader is then thrown in when the shocking and ritualistic traditions are given.
They also celebrate the people that came after and helped combine cultures and races, but also the cultures of the natives before the Europeans came. This holiday is also used to proclaim the Hispanic Heritage of Latin America. It is celebrated in many countries such as Mexico, Costa Rica, Venezuela, and Uruguay.

CHRISTMAS CAROL COMPARE AND CONTRAST Humbug- language or behavior that is false or meant to deceive people(webster). The movie Christmas Carol and the play are two very different things in total.

Have you ever done something so bad that you wish you could erase from your past? If you have, I can definitely relate because I did something which wasn’t so kind. I am so clumsy, that I dropped some of my icing on the ground, and the President slipped on it! It was never my intention to slip the President of Candyland! Anyway, the point is I think I deserve a second chance to prove that I am truly, a very good cupcake.
The festivals involved bonfires to attract bats, and the people would wear masks to appease evil spirits. Going door to door dressed in costumes asking for treats goes back to the Middle Ages. Poor people would go door to door asking for food in return for prayers. In the United States during the late 1800s, many pranks were made. The pranks got out of hand and as a result town leaders encouraged people to dress up
Halloween is one of the oldest holidays and is celebrated in different and unique ways all around the world. Here in the US we commonly associate Halloween with odd costumes, candy, and trick or treating. However, in Mexico Halloween takes on a whole new meaning. In fact, it doesn’t even have the same name. In Mexico Halloween is called Dia de la Brujas which is the day for children and is followed by Dia de los Muertos which means day of the dead.
Many people don’t know about the Holocaust or only know that it happened during the time of WW2. The Holocaust was the mass massacre 6 million of Jews and other minorities in Europe by the Nazi regime. Some people might not want their kids to be taught this in 8th grade because they believe that their children’s minds will be polluted by thoughts of killing and extended torture. Students in 8th grade should definitely be taught about the Holocaust because it is necessary to teach them to learn from history and never judge anyone by their race, and finally explain to them that being silent towards others suffering can lead to mass destruction over a period of time. Firstly, the students need to aware of and understand the magnitude of the massacre.
