There is Nothing Like Mexican Celebrations

Mexicans really know how to enjoy life and celebrate their national and religious holydays like there is no tomorrow.

Take for example the Mexican Independence Day. All Mexicans are celebrating their independence day with so much passion and euphoria as if they just won it yesterday and not almost 200 years ago.

Every 16th of September the entire Mexico is decorated including streets, cars, houses, office buildings, trees, and people. Everything that can be decorated is decorated with Mexican national colors of green, white and red, Mexican flags, balloons, and light decorations.

People are wearing traditional Mexican clothing and costumes or at least they have the sombreros (traditional Mexican hats with large brim) on heir heads.

Traditional Mexican music is played by the Mariachis and other traditional Mexican bands. Mexican dances such as the Mexican Hat Dance are danced in the streets and everybody sing traditional Mexican songs or just yell and shout. The reason for this is that on that they it doesnt really matter if you know how to sing because the only important thing is to make some noise.

Of course traditional Mexican foods are a big part of all Mexican fiestas, especially the Mexican Independence Day, as well as the great Mexican drinks including tequila, Mexican beer, vine, margaritas, sangria and many others.

There are also other Mexican celebrations that are not so intense but nothing less interesting and unique such as the Mexican national holiday the Day of the Dead or the Posadas and Mexican Christmas celebration.

The Day of the Dead is the Mexican holiday that is dedicated to the family members and friends that have died. It is the time to remember and honor them and pray for their souls. This religious Mexican holiday has its roots in the Aztec religious beliefs and even though it is not an official holiday it is celebrated by the great majority of Mexicans.

Mexicans have very special and unique way of celebrating Christmas. It is especially interesting their way of celebrating the time just before Christmas (December 16thDecember 24th), which is called the Posada. This is the time when Mother Merry and St. Joseph were looking for lodging days before Christ was born.

In conclusion, Mexican celebrations are big part of rich and traditional Mexican culture and if you ever get a chance you should experience it.
