Mexican traditions

Unique Mexican traditions even tourists have to follow

Mexico is a beautiful city that is filled with a lot of traditions, and cultural events that people from all over the world come over to see.
Although Mexico is very open to its tourists, there are still a lot of unique traditions that are set place in Mexico, that even tourists from another land have to follow. If you are looking to travel to Mexico, a cheap way would be to travel to Toronto first, and then to Cancun, and then find a flight to Mexico from there. There are cheap flights to Cancun from Toronto available easily.

Here are some of those traditions:

Bull Fighting

Bull fighting or Charreria is one of the most amusing and fun events in all of Mexico. This tradition has been gaining so much traction in the recent years that almost everyone who has at least heard of Mexico might relate Mexico with bull fighting.
Bull fighting is a unique tradition that everyone has to get into, no matter what they are doing. It’s a fully public event.

Las Posadas

Las Posadas is one of the more religious events, which commemorate the experiences of Mary and Joseph as they made their way to Bethlehem. People come together with drinks and traditional food. Usually, if the event is celebrated in a family, one child is blessed with the title of “angel”, and that child has to bear the responsibility of carrying Mary & Joseph’s statues with their family members.

Piñatas are the ultimate manifesto that even violence can lead to a fun event. Piñata exploding has become a very popular event not only in Mexico, but even outside Mexico. Piñatas are basically dolls made of paper, and are filled with candies or trinkets. Typically, a child is chosen, and then blindfolded, while given a hammer or bat. The child has to follow everyone’s instructions, or trust their natural instincts, and hit the piñata with force enough to completely destroy the doll itself.

Day of the Dead

In order to commemorate the souls that have departed from this physical realm onto another realm, Mexico has this beautiful event of the day of the dead. In this event, everyone remembers their beloved ones through family or friends’ gatherings. This event is not supposed to be a sad event, but is actually celebrated, because they believe that the dead “awake and celebrate with them”.

The Day of the dead is  called Día de  Muertos.

San Marcos Fair

The San Marcos fair is a 2-century old tradition. It is a beautiful day where people get themselves drunk on food, music, dance, beer and absolutely everything that a man could possibly get drunk on.

San Marcos Fair is also a family friendly event, because if you are not interested in getting drunk, you can go watch that horse show, or listen to mariachi music. It’s all up to you.
