The food, burritos, enchiladas, tacos, the food is just tastier when it's mexican.
Mexican culture and the people who have their heritage have such a thirst and desire to honor their own families but also everyone in their festival of the dead. Their food and music are as diverse and incredible as their people. ^_^
Probably the history, I like to learn about the conquistadors and how they founded new Spain, I think it was called that? And how they killed the natives living there.But eventually the Mexican revolution started which obviously founded Mexico.
It's all about the TACOS & BURRITOS, they are delicious!
My favorite part is the food because it's delicioso.
Hands down, it's the music.
everything the holidays... (they do it big cinco de mayo, dead of the dead) my best friend is Mexican im practically family (call his mom momma ramos) and the food tamales, the drinks, and the liquor (first drink was of course when i was 21 -_-) nice to be around other cultures other than your own
Im going with dios de los muertos. Goinging out and celibrating the dead, while looking after your ancestors.
The art and colors are fantastic plus dnt forget about the FOOD!! its amazing I love mexican food. Also all the Aztec stuff I really dig into the native history thats why I was so excited toplay as a native american in ac3 but that game was boring.
In San Diego, there is a little Mexican food restaurant called Lucha Libre. That place has THE best burritos in town, hands down. The burritos are absolutely delicious, they are HUGE, and they are very cheap! The restaurant is decorated as an establishment that a luchador would love. There are all sorts of masks hanging up around the walls, pictures of luchadors posing with guests and celebrities, a gold upholstered chair at a table that is always "reserved" for the champion luchador, and many other souvenirs. Burritos, especially Lucha Libre's, are my favorite part of Mexican culture. If you are ever in San Diego, whether for Comic Con or for a summer vacation, be sure to stop by Lucha Libre and experience it for yourself! (www.tacosmackdown.com)
My favorite part of Mexican culture is the simplicity of its language, Spanish. The language is very easy to learn because it doesn't have nearly as many exceptions as the English language. The Mexican accent on Spanish also makes for some very interesting music like Mariachi.
Yo tango hormigas in mis pantalones!!! And I love TACOS!!! TTTAAAAAAACCCCCCCCOOOOOOOOSSSSSSS!!!!!
Now give me my game.
The aspect of family. Everybody is there for one-another in someway and they are all so tight knit. It's quite humbling.
As a mexican gamer, my favorite thing about my culture it's our view about death.
El dia de Muertos it's a day when we celebrate those who passed away(according to our traditions, it's the only day when the spirits of the dead can come to the world of the living).
We serve them their favorite food and drink, make an altar to them and eat death themed sweets (sugar skulls for example).
I've always loved the day of the dead celebration. The way that Mexico treats the afterlife seems far more interesting than the staid, somber attitude we Americans pull. It's a giant party with candy skulls, wild decorations, and dancing. Honestly it makes our candy and plastic costume fest we call Halloween look hollow by comparison.
For me it's probably the food and cool music! (upside-down exclamation point)Viva Mexico!
Tacos, Tacos, Tacos......
My favorite aspect of Mexican culture is the music. I think the music is seductive and passionate. The romance that stems from their dances is impressive and has gotten me laid. I also love the food, but that's an easy answer; everybody loves tacos
Piñatas. I mean, for what else in life do you get a reward for beating a paper mâché donkey?
