EVER CONSIDERED THE PERKS OF CELEBRATING THANKSGIVING, MEXICAN-STYLE?
Just how grateful would you feel to be chilling out in a bikini right now? And what about exchanging that store-bought eggnog for a premium piña colada? These, my friends, are just some of the perks of heading south to experience Thanksgiving, Mexican-style.
Although this is wholeheartedly an American holiday, the shared border with Mexico makes it inevitable that some U.S. Thanksgiving traditions would find their way south–with their added touch of spice and color, of course. Mexican families who choose to commemorate the day bring a religious intention into the celebrations, expressing a strong appreciation for their many blessings. Gathering with friends and family to share warm conversation and thanksgiving food with a traditional Mexican spin are high on the menu.
If the traditional turkey fare is a must-have, you’ll find numerous restaurants in destinations such as Los Cabos or the Mexican Caribbean, which play gracious host to ex-pats, vacationers, and locals. And when it comes to choosing the right all-inclusive family resort in Cancun or the Riviera Maya you can rest assured that a classic dinner will be served.
“Consider this. By choosing to give your normal holiday customs a Mexican twist, you might find yourselves counting your blessings even more than ever”.
