Mexican Independence

Happy Mexican Independence Day! 🎊

Yesterday I was able to attend the Vivamos Mexico event in the San Jacinto plaza celebrating the 212th anniversary of Mexican Independence. It’s gratifying to see how close our cities are (El Paso and Juarez) and how proud people are of their Mexican culture and roots. πŸ‡²πŸ‡½

The Mariachi playing was one of the best I’ve ever heard. The men singing had so much lung control and helped drum up the crowd’s excitement. Old people were clapping and dancing, one older gentleman did a little routine with his cap, and the kids were so excited waiving their little Mexican flags. I’m so happy to live in such a multicultural environment and have my kiddos exposed to different cultures at a young age. They got to dress up for school today! πŸŽ‰πŸ’ƒπŸ•Ί

This fiesta-friendly holiday celebrates Mexico’s declaration of independence from Spain in 1810, and it’s filled with national pride, colorful parades, mariachi concerts, and food, food, and more Sabrosa food. People of Mexican heritage all over the world commemorate this important event in their country’s history when a brave priest in the village of Dolores rang his church bell and delivered a powerful speech that set the War of Independence from Spain in motion. πŸ””
