First grade class celebrating Day of the Dead?

We got an email from DS's teacher that they are learning about Day of the Dead and making an altar for loved ones who have died. We are supposed to bring photos.

DS thankfully has not lost anyone yet (knock on wood), and I know nothing about this holiday other than what I just learned when I googled it.

Does anyone know much about it? Is it a weird thing that they are doing this?

Honestly when I was a kid we never learned about death, etc in school.

My oldest dd is learning about it right now (grade 3) but they're not celebrating it. I'm fine with it

DD is in third grade and I haven't heard anything mentioned about it.

Not sure how I feel about it either way.

Thanks for the reply. She said they were "learning" about it, but this altar thing seems odd for school. Especially for the little guys.
