Whenever I found its way to Mexico City ten years ago on an asignment that is temporary of months, many prejudices about Mexico quickly melted away like mid summer time snowfall, while checking out the beauties for the beast.
As soon as we came across Lidia in my own 2nd thirty days, i must say i felt inmediately in love it’s culture, it’s history, it’s people, it’s food, it’s diversity with her and this amazing country.
Therefore here we get, after 8 many years of marriage: 7 (thousand! ) Great things about being hitched with a Mexican – a homage to my stunning Mexican spouse Lidia and Mexicans generally speaking
1-There is obviously celebration someplace!
Mexican families are usually big, therefore with 1500 direct or family that is indirect, there’s always SOME occasion taking place. Sometimes a huge party, like a marriage or a Fiesta de Quinceanera, but mostly simply easy events at somebodies house (or -my favorite- shutting an integral part of the road right in front of a house and adding a celebration tent, with disco lights and giant speakers…). Nonetheless they quickly convert into among the better events you have got ever gone to, with great (reside) music, amazing food ‘n drinks and -most likely- dancing through the night very very long.
2-Even tragic moments convert into magic moments
Even yet in the saddest moments we could study on our other Mexicans. It’s amazing to see how Mexicans assist one another when you look at the darkest of that time period. Where within the Netherlands you generally simply head to a church or a funeral home, |home tha few days after someone died, Catholic Mexicans will mostly go immediately minute to a Velorio or somebodies home, where in fact the coffin is beautifully illuminated with candles and plants. And they’re going to typically spend as much as 48 hours using their deceased one that is loved with performing and prayers, while sharing meals and products. Following a burial or cremation, relatives continue steadily to get together for nine days that are consecutive these activities are known as Novenas. 继续阅读
