All Mexican Holidays
All Mexican Holidays and Mexican Way of Living
One of the main characteristic of Mexican people is that they love to live and enjoy life as much as they can.
There is one Mexican saying that goes like this: “Mexicans work to live, others live to work”.
Mexicans love to dance, to play music, to sing, to drink, and to celebrate life as much as possible.
That is probably one of the main reasons why Mexicans have so many holidays (more than majority of other nations).
What is even more interesting is that most of Mexicans that live outside Mexico keep celebrating their Mexican holidays, but they also celebrate the holidays of a country they live in.
Mexicans celebrate even when there is no official holiday.
For example, they celebrate events such as the one when Mexican national soccer team wins an important international soccer match. When this happens Mexicans are in the streets dancing, singing, drinking and having great time till morning hours.
Even the change of Federal government is the official holiday in Mexico!
