Day of the Dead, celebrated on Nov. 2, is meant to be a time to celebrate life and the people who have come and gone. "Students learn about the different way a culture looks at death without the unnecessary dread or horror that we've seen in some societies," said Washougal High Spanish teacher Brian Eggleston.
