It’s the Day of the Child in Mexico!
Schools are closed today, families are planning mini-celebrations, piñatas in the evenings for the kids.
Children’s Day has been a big deal in Mexico with parties, piñatas, outings, and gifts since it’s 1925 inception. How big a deal? The last Walmart advertising flier devoted the center 6-8 pages to Christmas-like displays of toys and games – this in a country where most children in working families receive just a couple of gifts for Christmas instead of the mountain of presents north of the border kids have come to expect.
