  • Three aspects of culture that impact Mexico's worldview are holidays, recreation and eating. This creates a worldview that Mexican culture is involved with having a great connection with family.
  • “Mexican families remember their loved ones who have passed on and pay homage to their spirits through storytelling, food, drink, and prayer. Altars are decorated with flowers and adorned with religious amulets and offerings of food, cigarettes, and alcoholic beverages for the deceased's spirits to enjoy'”
  • Mexico's Day of the Dead is a holiday that commemorates loved ones that have passed away. It is a celebration of the culture's ancestors and many believe they can communicate with the dead during this event. This shows how we value the importance of family by remembering the people who passed away and the day of the dead is when you can sort of reunite again.

  • “People are expected to wait until everyone is served before eating. When eating, Mexicans keep both hands above the table. Some foods are eaten with utensils, while others (such as tacos, for example) are eaten by hand or by using pieces of tortillas to scoop food. Meals usually are not rushed and may last up to two hours. One should generally ask to be excused when leaving the table” (
