  • 52. CONTEMPORARY CUSTOMS- MUSIC - DANCE – SPORTS & TRADITIONS • American pop culture is closely followed in terms of music, movies, television shows, and video games. • Cell phones and social media (facebook and twitter in particular) are extremely popular.
  • 53. EVERYDAY LIVING • Typical day schedule: – Meal times are different: Largest meal is at 2-3pm, small dinners at 8-9pm. – In small towns, businesses will close from 2-4pm for ‘lunch’ and a short nap known as siesta, then people return to work until around 8pm. • A School Day/Week: The school experience for an 11-12 year old in Mexico is similar to the U.S.; however, there are hardly any extracurricular activities throughout the school year. – Uniforms are widely used in many schools.
  • 54. EVERYDAY LIVING • English as a second language is commonly taught in urban schools from an early age. Most private schools are now bi-lingual (most English, some French). • Extracurricular Activities: Some sports have afterschool sports programs, but competitions and tournaments between schools are sporadic. Cheerleading programs are almost non-existant.
  • 55. EVERYDAY LIVING • Family Life: Families are extremely important. Many times, children are somewhat involved in household chores, but not as much as in the U.S. • Extended family is considered extremely important. Mexicans will go out of their way to assist extensive family. • Grandparents move in with their children when they cannot take care of themselves. Retirement homes and communities are rare and are destined to those who have no family left.
  • 56. EVERYDAY LIVING • Acquisition of pets is common, with people mostly choosing dogs and cats. • Mexico is known for creating fairs in the center of small towns. In urban areas, each municipality within a city creates several fairs per year. Fairs are family oriented events. • Parks are common in large cities, though they can be dangerous. • In smaller cities and towns, parks are rare. People use the main plaza at the center of each town as a place for gathering.
