Just the mention of holiday making the first place that is most likely to come to mind is Mexico. It is one place synonymous with festivities and holiday making, thanks to the hospitable Mexicans and the warm and enchanting weather. Mexico is sandwiched between the United States and Central America, thereby sharing the best of both worlds so to speak. Despite the fact that people love to visit this wonderland of a place, it has received very negative criticism because of the many crimes associated with the destination. However, most people still see Mexico is the perfect tourist destination if not for anything else for the aesthetic beauty and hospitality.
Mexico as a country celebrates a number of different main holidays which fall under three major categories – statutory holidays, civic holidays, and festivities. As is with most countries, statutory holidays are celebrated countrywide with every public servant and students allowed to take a paid day off. Civic holidays on the other hand are just like statutory holidays but employees are not essentially entitled to a day off from their duties. As for festivities, it is any holiday that is celebrated not only in Mexico but everywhere else in the world such as Mother’s day, Father’s day, Valentine’s Day, New Year, Christmas Day, and many more.
When you say that Mexico celebrates very many holidays, it would be seen as an understatement because the holidays are quite different and celebrated on different days of the year, each holiday having its own unique and significant meaning. Ano Nuevo is one good example of a holiday in Mexico which is celebrated on the first day of every New Year. Dia de Indepencia is the other notable holiday in Mexico celebrated in memory of the day Mexico started its first Independence War.
Cinco de Mayo is a holiday celebrated not only in Mexico but in other countries where Mexican residents reside. This holiday falls under the civic holiday category and is one of the most famous of all holidays. All Souls Day is also a noteworthy holiday falling under the festivities category and celebrated in honor of all the people who have passed on.
The above mentioned holidays are few of the many celebrated in Mexico and beyond. This only means that there is a celebration for everyone, be it the children, men, women, mothers, fathers, etc. the events therefore leave something for everyone to be happy and rejoice about. Certainly where there is a celebration there must be delicious and delectable food cooked, natty items and souvenirs being sold and passed around and generally an all-around gathering of happy people.
