Every April 30th, Mexicans take time out of their day to celebrate and honor the children. This morning I couldn’t sleep when my husband got up (4:30am) so I turned on Univision in an attempt to expose myself and the boy inside me to Spanish. When he came back in the room there was a news story about today being the Day of the Children or Día del niño. He seemed almost as excited now as he must have been as a child living in Mexico. Today all the children will be getting cookies and ice cream in school and will get to play games for most of the day. There is one celebration that I found in the Twin Cities (at Mercado Central in Minneapolis) which I guess we won’t go to this year but will have to plan on going to in the future. One more thing to put on the calendar in our attempt to incorporate as much of Mexico into our lives as possible living in Minnesota.
