Cinco de Mayo, obviously. I get to eat delicious food, drink delicious beer, and generally make a fool out of myself. Then again, that's not much different than any other day of the year.
I'd hate to answer it this way, but I'd have to say the food as that's the main thing I've experienced from that culture. Mexican food is great!
My favorite aspect of Mexican culture would have to be the spicy food.
Living in California I'm surrounded by it, and due to my gluten intolerance it's one of the few cultural foods I can feel safe eating (minus flour tortillas of course).
Mexico is a wonderful place! they have ponchos and spicy food, in there born also Rey Misteryo and the great Eddy Guerrero two wonderful wrestlers! :)
My favorite part of Mexican culture has to be that workers get to go home, eat lunch and take a nap in the middle of the day. Mainly because I wish this was a prevalent thing in America instead of us being such a workaholic culture. Come on, who doesn't want to take a break from work to eat a good meal and sleep?
My favorite part of Mexican culture has to be lucha libre. Last time I went to Mexico I went to a lucha libre stadium. It was the most fun I have ever had, drinking beers, being with family and seeing some insane wrestling moves; the music was pretty decent too.
Piñatas, they combine two of my favorite interests: candy and breaking things
Chili Verde Burrito.
The best thing about Mexican culture in my opinion is how much it values family. My family is mostly Mexican and no matter what people are doing or who they may be we all are still able to come together to help and support each other.
My favorite aspect of Mexican culture is how much they love sports, particularly cross country (ba dum tish)
cantinas, i mean really.
The crazy skeletons, creepy yet festive
The best part of Mexican culture is the FIESTAS!!! Ay, chihuahua! Yo quiero taco bell! I want el game please.
Siesta time... Because who doesn't like to sleep? EXACTLY!
Mucha Lucha!?... and Tacos of course, they are awesome.

Day of the dead is very intriguing.nnand tacos because...well tacos!
