Dear Moms: Let’s Not Cut Our Umbilical Culture

Posted by: | 5 Comments

Watching your kids and their cousins: running around freely in a beautiful farm,  playing hide and seek,  milking cows, riding horses, making pretend soup by mixing water and flowers,  looking at the stars at night and more,  are beautiful things for a parent to see. Seeing kids play so happily in the country side, was not only a wonderful thing into itself, but it was also amazing that a couple of the kids there, my kids, live most of theRead More ...

Disney’s ¡Viva Navidad! isn’t the only thing that got us completely in the Holidays mood at Disneyland Resorts.

One of the many seasonal shows we were excited about experiencing was the transformation of World of Color, the fabulous after-dark spectacle in Disney California Adventure’s Paradise Bay, into “Winter Dreams.” It took aRead More ...

Can it be true? Can Disneyland Resort really be creating a special 8-week long celebration in “inspired by the warmth and joyous spirit of the Latino culture, filled with holiday traditions, jubilant dancing and exciting music”. ¡Así es! We live so close to Disneyland Resort and are lucky enough to visit the parks many times per year and are always happy to see things like their Día de Muertos altars or Reyes Magos celebrations, but in some way it’s neverRead More ...

For many people the idea of “celebrating” death might seem gory and even disrespectful, but for those in Mexico and other countries in Latin America remembering those that have passed before us is filled with joy and a festive atmosphere.
