¡Feliz año nuevo a todos!
Valentines Day - celebrate eternal love!
Day of the Dead reminds us that life is short, the cycle of life keeps turning, our loving relationships will last a lifetime and the spirits of the dead are always with us. Amor eterno, or eternal love is celebrated on Valentines Day in Mexico on Feb. 14, where school kids still have promenades in the town square, giving the girls lots of fresh flowers and friends & co-workers exchange little gifts & candies.
The holiday began in the 1950's as a copy-cat type holiday from the U.S., but Mexicans really enjoy this holiday. Sending live serenades to sing dramatic, heart wrenching songs to one's lover is a famous, time honored tradition. When I'm in Mexico City, I enjoy going to the mariachi parks where groups of talented, handsome musicians hang out, waiting to be hired and taken to girlfriend's balconies. There's women's mariachis too, in gorgeous hand embroidered outfit,s also out there waiting to be hired. In Mexico City, one can hire a 5 piece mariachi for a Valentine's serenade playing 5 songs for about $40.
We have many hand made gifts throughout our pages to delight your valentine!
