Mexican Independence

Historical summary

On September 16 the Independence of Mexico is celebrated; this was the consequence of a political and social process resolved with, of course, arms, which put an end to the Spanish regimen in most of the territories of New Spain (now known as Mexico) and gave rise to the First Mexican Empire.

Everything ended on September 27, 1821; after an eleven-year war that get rid of the Spanish rule.

This is a tradition full of color, music, traditional food, dance, and convivence.

At Ensenada, California

In my city Ensenada, a party was held on the main street! there were singing contests, and different dances such as calabaceado, folkloric, and even modern. There was also food, flowers, music, and banners in the streets. I really liked going with my family, it is a very beautiful tradition.

At Mérida, Yucatán

As Mexicans, we celebrate our independence with a delicious Pozole! There're many recipes on the internet. However, here's a vegan recipe I can recommend you to follow to prepare an exquisite and authentic vegan Pozole.

- Pour 2L of water, corn, onion, garlic, and cook over high heat.

- "Crumble" the mushrooms or cut them into small pieces.

-When the grains (corn) are soft, which should have been about 1 hour or less, make the mixture of the chiles (it must be strained/ sifted) and salt to add more flavor

- Remove the seeds from the chiles and cook them in a pot with 2 cups of water. When they are soft, blend them together with the water from the chilies, garlic, and onion that were in the corn).

- lf the mixture is a little thick, add water (as necessary).

- Pour the mushrooms and cook over low heat for about 20 minutes or until you think it’s "done".

- After that, it would be ready!

Finally, you can add radish, onion, lettuce, oregano, and lemon as a compliment

*The cooking time may vary depending on your stove*

Costa Rica

I live in Costa Rica, a small country in Central America. This country is mainly known for its huge diversity of its fauna, its popular quote ‘’Pura Vida’’ and as a world leader in sustainability. The most outstanding species that inhabit here are the puma, jaguar, deer, turtles, monkeys, yigüirro, and hummingbird. Recently the sloth became a new national symbol. It’s actually a very beautiful country to visit, besides, there are a lot of places to go to like the beach, the mountain, and the city.

September is an important month for the country because on September 15th we celebrate our independence day. During this time, people usually prepare traditional food called: gallo pinto, coffee (our national drink of the country), casados, arroz con leche, and picadillo. People decorate their homes with the national flag and also other patriotic decorations.

Starting on September 9, people in Guatemala light the independence torch and then carry it on foot through Honduras, El Salvador, and Nicaragua, ending in Cartago, Costa Rica on the 14th, the eve of Independence Day. On September 14th as a tradition, all the children gather outside at around six in the afternoon to parade with lanterns in the streets of the country. There is a huge variety of lanterns, most of the time, the lanterns are made by the kids but sometimes they do this as a family.

On September 15th, the most awaited day of the month, people do different types of activities. The most commonly known is the parade where people play music (mostly the school bands), and students do folk dances and masquerades. Costa Rica has a lot of other important dates, but this is the most important one because we celebrate the fact that we are an independent country.

Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia and the national day was on the 23rd. Saudi traditions are rooted in Islamic teachings and Arab customs. The highlights of the year are the holy month of Ramadan and the Hajj season, and the national holidays that follow them. The holy month of Ramadan, during which Muslims fast from dawn to dusk, culminates with the Eid Al Fitr holiday.
