Important Mexican National Holidays

There are many Mexican national holidays however the most important Mexican holidays are: Mexican Independence Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, Day of the Virgin of Guadalupe, The Day of the Dead, New Years Day, and Mothers Day.

Even though Mexico has no official religion close to 95% of the Mexican people are Christians which is why Christmas is so important to great majority of Mexicans.

Mexican Christmas traditions include the Posadas which take place between December 16th and December 24th as well as the celebration of Christmas Eve (December 24th) and Christmas Day (December 25th) and the Day of the Three Kings (6 January) which is day when children receive gifts.

Day of the Virgin of Guadalupe is very significant Mexican holyday because Our Lady of Guadalupe, as Mexicans call her, appeared in the 16th century in what is now the northern part of Mexico City.

Also, the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe was a first Mexican flag and it represents love, independence, freedom, religion and hope. In other words Our Lady of Guadalupe is deeply rooted in all Mexican hearts and they truly cherish and adore her.

Many would agree that Mexican Independence Day is one of the most important Mexican national holydays. On this day whole of Mexico is celebrating, and the entire country takes part in the biggest Mexican fiesta of the year.

Even the president of the Mexico is participating in this celebration by addressing the nation as the founder of the Mexican Independence War, Father Miguel Hidalgo, addressed his countrymen in the 1810 on the 16th of September.

On this day Mexican cities, towns and villages are decorated with balloons, Mexican flags, and lighted decorations. Traditional Mexican foods and drinks are served; there are many people wearing traditional Mexican clothing, and everybody dances to the traditional Mexican music.

The day of the Dead is the day when Mexicans pray for their loved ones that had passed away and honor and remember them. This national Mexican holiday represents the integration of the Aztec and Spanish cultures and their religious believes.
