How to create a Day of the Dead Altar or Día de Muertos Ofrenda

How to create a Day of the Dead Altar or Día de Muertos Ofrenda

by Lizette Carrk

Since becoming a mom I knew I wanted to pass on my Hispanic Heritage and traditions to los bodoques.  Growing up Latina, Mamá would take me to el Mercado de Portales to buy all the stuff for the altar.  While some of the pieces could be re-used over the years, it was always fun to go on the hunt for new pieces, and of course pick some new papel picado, sugar and chocolate skulls  (that you can eat after), and the fresh zempasúchitl (marigold flowers).

I started putting up my own altar in the US when I was pregnant with my first one. It suddenly hit me, Día de Muertos was coming and if I did not celebrate it and make it a tradition, no one would...

7 Books Recommended By a Latina Mom That Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

by Lizette Carrk

When I came to the US almost 12 years ago, I was first exposed to Hispanic Heritage Month.  Being from Mexic,  September is already a fiesta as we celebrate our Independence Day.

Hispanic New Year Traditions That Will Have Your Kids Scratching Their Heads

Hispanic New Year Traditions That Will Have Your Kids Scratching Their Heads

by Janny Perez

Growing up Hispanic meant that, like Christmas, New Year's was not celebrated in a traditionally American way, especially when it came to traditions and rituals. As a Colombian born, growing up in a very Latino Miami, even New Year's traditions became a mosh of many Latin countries.  As a kid, I often just scratched my head or rolled my eyes at the funny and cooky things my parents did on New Year's.  Now as an adult, I must say, that I've kept many of the traditions, though some still have me scratching my head.

Celebrating a Multicultural Christmas While Growing up Hispanic

Celebrating a Multicultural Christmas While Growing up Hispanic

by Janny Perez

I am Janny Perez.  I was born in Colombia and raised in Miami by two Colombian parents.  Growing up Hispanic in Miami during Christmas time meant listening to “Mi Burrito Sabanero,” on the radio, attending Misa de Gallo, and having your neighbors gift your family everything from turrón, arroz con leche, and coquito  during the holiday season.  It meant Christmas Eve was usually very loud and jam packed with activity.  My husband, on the other hand, grew up in Bulgaria, in a very Americanized home, celebrating Christmas listening to 50’s Christmas classics on vinyl while having a quiet vegetarian dinner, yes vegetarian.  So now that we have a daughter, how can we celebrate a multicultural Christmas and make everyone happy?

You Know You're Becoming Your Latina Mom When...

by Janny Perez

I never thought I would say this, but I've seriously become my mom, not a regular mom, but a Latina mom, and yes there's a big difference!  I remember growing up, rolling my eyes at the things my mom would do that were, well different than other moms.  I didn't think much of it back then but now looking back I completely get it.  I can now find humor and see my 3 year old daughter rolling her eyes at the things I do, but I hope that one day she too can look back and appreciate these different things.
