If you are as fascinated with Mexico as I am or if you’re dreaming about making a move, this is an incredible resource to add to your collection. I love this book because it not only tells you everything you need to know about each Mexican holiday, the author also shares some personal stories which makes it more relatable to readers. I personally love reading various traditions and how they came about; for example, why do Mexicans eat 12 grapes at midnight on New Year’s Eve? I’m not telling but I can assure you, I’m going to be buying some grapes this holiday season 😄 I give this book five stars and highly recommend it. –Mima
