Thanksgiving in Paradise
There are a few differences when it comes to Thanksgiving traditions in Mexico and in the United States. In the United States and in Mexico, Thanksgiving traditions and festivities have the same type of harvest-themed focus, which includes pumpkins, fall leaves, autumn-inspired decorations, flowers, and assorted fruits. In Mexico, Thanksgiving is a time where families get together and thank God for everything he has done for them and their family. It is very common, for friends and guests, to say a prayer before eating. In some American homes, Thanksgiving has a religious component, and in Mexico, it is even more prevalent as more than eighty-two percent of Mexicans are Catholic.
Mexican Thanksgiving Flavors
In the United States, the Thanksgiving meal is usually a stuffed turkey, homemade mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry sauce, and vegetables. In Mexico, the Thanksgiving meal usually includes traditional dishes such as pork roast as the main entrée instead of a turkey. If a turkey is on the menu, then it may be prepared with a green mole sauce or chipotle peppers. In some cities in Mexico, they will serve turkey enchiladas, chorizo pumpkin soup, and a candied pumpkin dessert.
