Fourth of July in Mexico...
Sunday, July 4, 2010
Regular readers of this blog know that I love holidays. And that I try to celebrate them in my home, so that my kiddies can learn about their American culture.
Although I love the 4th of July, it's not an easy holiday to celebrate here in Mexico. It usually coincides with the last day of school, and there are always a ton of things to do for the end of the school year activities and parties. (My kiddies like to volunteer me to make cakes and cupcakes!)
This year I was determined to celebrate the 4th of July. And that's exactly what we did. Yesterday, a day early. Sundays are no good because we spend them with my in-laws.
I made hamburgers and a delicious apple pie! Doesn't get more American than that, does it?
It doesn't matter that I have lived in Mexico for almost 10 years. I am still very proud to be an American. Old Glory is waving in my living room. And I cry EVERY TIME I hear The Star-Spangled Banner, whether it be while watching the Super Bowl or World Cup Soccer.
Happy Birthday to my beloved U.S.A. God bless you!
I wish you all a very Happy (and safe) Independence Day!
