Day of the Skull - level 2
A week after All Saints’ Day, Bolivians celebrated an old tradition. They call it the Day of the Skull.
People decorate skulls of the dead and parade them to the cemetery. People put hats and flowers on the skulls. They even give them food and cigarettes during the ceremony. People believe that this brings them good luck and protection.
The Roman Catholic Church does not like this tradition.
Difficult words: skull (the head of a dead person), decorate (to make beautiful), parade (to walk together to celebrate something).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
