Thanks to my Mexican friends who I’ve met in high school, the significance of this day was clearer to me years ago, as this was not celebrated the same way in Africa and in Europe when growing up. We put together an amazing list to get you up dated and ready for the celebration that you might have been waiting for for quite some time.
