About Traditions of Mexican American Culture

Mexican American culture is very rich, diverse, and interesting.

United States and Mexico coexist for very long time which is why many things had happened between these two great countries in the past.

Some of those things are bad but many of them are good. What is most important for this subject is that all of those things resulted in bringing closer these two cultures.

For example, the outcome of the Mexican American was the Mexican loss of close to two thirds of its territories to the United States. This event had great impact on demographic change of the both countries.

United States demography changed over night and many Mexicans found themselves living in the United States instead in Mexico. This was great cultural shock, not only for Mexicans but for the Americans as well.

Mexican illegal immigration to the United States is another thing that greatly changed (and still is changing) the demography of the United States.

Nowadays there are cities and towns in the south of the United States where the great majority of people are Mexicans. If someone was to place you in the middle of those cities and towns you would most likely think that you are in Mexico and not in the United States.

In other words there are tens of millions of Mexican Americans and millions of illegal Mexican immigrants living in the United States today.

This is the reason why it is important that every American knows the traditions of Mexican American culture. The more we know the better chance we have to understand each others and coexist in peace and prosperity. Remember, ignorance equals stereotypes and fear, which equals hostility and violence.

Mexican American culture is a mixture of American and Mexican culture. This however doesnt mean that it is not unique. In fact, it is very unique and interesting.

Most of Mexicans are Catholics which is why most of Mexican Americans are Catholics. Majority of Mexican Americans celebrate the American holidays as well as the religious and national Mexican holidays.

Mexican Americans are proud to be American but they are also proud of their Mexican origin.

Mexican American food is world famous and people from around the planet enjoy the culinary Mexican American mixture.

Mexican Americans are very active in politics, business, film industry, sports, and so on, and they play an important role in shaping the modern United States.
