Death is an aspect of life that all cultures must reconcile with, but how cultures reconcile with it varies. American culture tends to sterilize death and remove it from general conversation. The topic of death and the physical remnants of death are usually enclosed and kept as far out of sight as possible. In Mexico, on the other hand, death is both displayed and celebrated. Mexicans embrace death in both their spiritual and cultural lives. Although these two cultures differ on their approach to death, both celebrate October 31 annually.
American Sports have a lot of similarities, but they also have a lot of differences. There are many sports that “Americans” and “Hispanics” share, for example one being boxing. Boxing is a huge deal in Mexico and in America as well. Believe it or not baseball is one of the most popular sports in Mexico, which is ironic because America calls baseball our “pastime”.
There are many similarities between American and Mexican schools. One similarity between American and Mexican schools is the technology that is used in the schools. Mexican schools use SMART board technology and have interactive classroom support like my school, Springs Studio for Academic Excellence in the United States. Another similarity between American and Mexican schools are the subjects taught in school. In both Mexican and American schools mathematics, language arts, science, and social studies are taught. Electives, geared towards the student’s future career path, are offered later on in the education system, just like they are offered to me now in the United States. Finally, an additional similarity between American and Mexican schools is that both education systems
During my whole life I’ve been back and forth, living between Chile and USA. I’ve lived in both countries for almost the same amount of years each. I think if I hadn’t lived here when I was smaller, I would feel a big cultural shock.
With both civilizations being developed around 3500 BC, there are many similarities and differences between the Egyptians and the Mayans. The Egyptians developed their empire in Northeast Africa, which affected the way they farmed and built their cities. The Mayans developed their civilization in MesoAmerica, which influenced their culture differently from the Egyptians. The farming techniques, architecture, and religion were all influenced by the environment they lived in.

Cinco de Mayo is a minor holiday in Mexico that has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage in both the United States and Mexico. The histories of Mexico and the United States are not two separate history. Cinco de Mayo is a confusing holiday for many people in the United States. It is not about Mexican Independence Day. Mexico celebrates its independence from Spain, which is actually the 16th of September. It commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican war. Cinco de Mayo has been celebrated across the United States and Mexico, but more in the United States with the traditions of parades, mariachi music performers and street festivals.
The Mexican culture is very diverse which has undergone many transformations over several decades and the culture varies widely throughout Mexico and the United States. I will be more focused on the other side of the border and express my findings about the Mexican culture in Mexico. According to woldatlas an online database, the majority of Mexicans live in cities like Mexico City with a population of 12 million Mexicans. Following cities include Iztapalapa, Ecatepec, Guadalajara, Puebla, and Ciudad Juarez all ranging with populations of one million to two million Mexicans. The smaller rural communities tend to have a stronger role in defining the country’s collective customs and traditions. The customs
The Mexican American society is rich with culture, traditions, folklore, and religion. These major influences are especially seen in the Los Angeles area. This area is rich in music, food, and customs of the Mexican culture. Here is where the majority of the Spanish language is spoken. The Mexican American culture is not just a blend of Mexico and the United States, it goes back further than
Throughout history, various ancient civilizations all over the globe have created traditions and customs that have been passed down through generation to generation. The idea of having these customs withstand the test of time is truly remarkable. A perfect example of the passing of tradition is the Mexican celebration of El Dia De Los Muertos. El Dia De Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a holiday that honors and celebrates loved ones of family who have passed away. Although it has its origins from the Aztec Empire, the holiday is widely celebrated in Latin America and even some parts of the United States. During the 1960s and early 1970s, the Chicano Movement embraced El Día de los Muertos as a way to reconnect with pre-Hispanic and Mexican
I’m the first generation of my family to be Mexican -American, but I have been introduced to the Mexican culture since I was born. I appreciate the difficulties my parents have faced to make me the person that I am today even though I wasn’t born in Mexico my parents have taught me the language and the culture which I’m so proud of being part of. For others being Hispanic is actually being born in any Latin American countries which is not true at all. Being Hispanic is much more than my cultural background it actually describes how much I appreciate my culture and how I get to experience things other people don’t. I fit into the Hispanic community through the experiencing the culture first hand ,participating in traditions and planning to include my culture in my future.
religion practice for both groups are majorly different; the Natives have focused more on the belief

The culture of Mexico has changed a lot over the last few hundred years and has
If Mexican culture were a quilt, then the many varied fabric patches that comprise its surface would be meals, the batting would be equal parts family and religion, and the thread used to sew the quilt together would be tradition. The people of Mexico consider mealtimes to be of utmost importance in their culture; however, much like an attractive quilt that lacks proper insulation—pretty, but useless—mealtimes lose much of their meaning without the substance that family and religion provide. Mealtimes in Mexico are a family affair, and immediate families in Mexico are typically multigenerational and tend to be quite large. Unlike most Americans, Mexican meals are almost exclusively had in the home—rather than in restaurants—where they are prepared,
