Celebrating Thanksgiving in Mexico
Usually, most people wouldn’t think about Thanksgiving and celebrating it in Mexico, but did you know that the holiday is observed in many top tourist destinations in Mexico? It is true, because more than one million American expats reside in Mexico, and within the last few years this holiday has become very popular. Across many towns in Mexico, many locals and expats celebrate Thanksgiving in Mexico, which occurs the last Thursday in November. Many Mexicans who have spent time in the United States come back to Mexico and they celebrate the holiday in Mexico, too. If you plan to be on vacation in Mexico during late November, then you will be able to find many restaurants that will be providing a special holiday menu.
Thanksgiving Traditions in Mexico
In Mexico, Thanksgiving traditions are very similar to traditions in the United States. Mexico and the United States typically have a harvest season theme, which often consists of fall leaves, orange pumpkins, fruits, local flowers along with autumn colored décor. The purpose of the holiday is to spend quality time with family and friends while enjoying a delicious meal. This day is when we all give thanks for all the blessings we have. Before the meal begins, family and friends will say a prayer of thanks before eating.
Thanksgiving in Mexico Menu
If you will be vacationing at one of Villa Group resorts, then your suite may come with a fully-equipped kitchen where you can make your own Thanksgiving meal. If you would rather not cook on your vacation, then you can order from local restaurants that are doing special holiday meals to go. Local restaurants or resorts may offer traditional Thanksgiving American style meals. This menu is usually a turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, veggies, and cranberry sauce. Some of the restaurants like to add a touch of Mexican dishes with their menus. For example, you may find the menu includes pork that has been marinated in a spicy green mole, turkey enchiladas, and chorizo pumpkin soup. The dessert could be a candied pumpkin dessert, bread pudding, and tres leches pumpkin flan, which are delicious treats. Perhaps you should try it over the regular pumpkin or pecan pies that are traditional desserts in the United States?
