Mexican Holidays and Celebrations

I love Mexican Holidays and Celebrations

Few weeks ago I came back from Mexico and I have to say Mexicans rock!

The only thing I knew about Mexico, Mexicans and Mexican culture in general was what I saw on TV and what I red in the news papers.

In other words, I knew very little about Mexican people and their fascinating country and way of living.

What struck me the most was how relaxed, easy going and kind Mexicans (in general) are. They simply live as if there is no worry in the world; and believe me they have many things to worry about in Mexico, but somehow they keep their optimism at very high level.

To be honest if I lived in the country like Mexico I would be everything but relaxed, especially in those parts of Mexico where there is major problem with drug cartels and violence they cause. However, it seems that Mexican people are much more resilient than me, which is why I admire them for that.

The fact that Mexicans appreciate life and enjoy it as much as possible is best represented with numerous Mexican holidays and celebrations that take place throughout the year.

Mexicans celebrate almost everything there is to celebrate, including Christmas, Mexican Independence Day, Mexican revolution, mothers (Mothers Day), fathers (Fathers Day), teachers (Teachers Day), students (Students Day), children (Childrens Day), love (Valentines Day), dead people (The Day of the Dead), Columbus (Columbus Day), Mexican Flag, army (Armys day), oil expropriation (Anniversary of the Oil Expropriation), labor (Labor Day), constitution (Constitution Day), change of federal government, and so on.

Of course all Mexicans celebrate birthdays, personal anniversaries and other occasions such as the graduations which all together ads up to numerous reasons to eat traditional Mexican foods, drink authentic Mexican alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks, listen to great Mexican music, and dance with beautiful Mexican women.

Now you know one of the reasons why it is good to be Mexican.
