I am very familiar with how the Day of the Dead is celebrated in Mexico but I know nothing of what is done in Cuba other than going to Mass on Nov. 1.  I am a Spanish teacher and my students would like to know.  Thank you

I don’t think they celebrate it in Cuba. Here in Mexico the Day of the Dead is a pre-Hispanic festival that got tacked onto All-Souls. Cuba does not have a native population so whatever rituals they had will have vanished with them.

If you want to see photos of the event in Mexico, my blog has them: http://exile-blog.blogspot.com/
