Difference In Mexican And American Culture

What is the biggest difference in Mexican and American culture?

Right from the beginning you should know that Mexican and American cultures are quite different.

Both of these cultures are interesting and have many unique and great traditions, however many of those traditions differ greatly.

This is the reason why it is difficult to pinpoint the biggest difference between American and Mexican culture.

There are simply so many differences that it is easier to number what Mexican and American Cultures have in common than to number their differences.

However, having this said, it is safe to say that probably the biggest difference between Mexican and American culture is the life style or way of life, if you prefer.

If we put aside numerous cultural differences such as the national holidays, working hours, family relationships, religion, food and cuisine, weddings, celebrations, funerals, music, clothing, taboos, etc; then we can talk about one of the most important differences in Mexican and American culture, which is the way that Mexicans perceive and live life and, on the other side, the American dream that most of Americans dream and are ready to do almost everything to achieve it.

For example, Common American man is whiling to sacrifice time with his wife, children, parents and friends in order to work long hours so that he can reach the American dream. Little does he know that by doing so he is sacrificing his life. In other words he is sacrificing too much.

Mexican men, on the other side have another dream, which is to spend as much time as possible with their wives, children and friends. They always look to find the way to relax and enjoying life to its fullest.

There is one Mexican saying that maybe explains this very big difference between Mexican and American Culture that goes like this:

Americans live to work, Mexicans work to live
