Mexican Independence Day
We celebrated the Mexican Independence Day this year at Mexico Lindo in Halifax. Every year in Mexico, there are parades, parties and the ringing of the bell at the National Palace. The President rings a bell and everyone yells, “¡Viva México!” three times. Mexicans all around the globe celebrate Independence Day, also known as El Grito because it is the day when Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla launched the revolution that led to Spain’s departure from Mexico. At Mexico Lindo, We enjoyed authentic dishes such as hominy soup, beans, rice, tamales and shredded beef in warm tortillas. The students sang all the way to Halifax. The food was so delicious and filling that they slept all the way home. A great time was had by all.
