This past weekend, we kicked off a month-long celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. This is the time where my kids and I really immerse ourselves in tradition and heritage. I am Mexican-American, so we talk about all things related to Mexican culture! Yesterday was Mexico’s Independence Day, and if one country knows how to celebrate Independence Day, it’s Mexico. My kids have been exposed to their heritage from birth, and as they get older, I know they’ll be able to grasp the significance of knowing their ancestral background and so much more.
I asked several Hispanic moms to ask their kids about what their heritage means to them, and the following answers are both heartfelt and cute. Here is a collection of quotes from kids of all ages on what it means to be Hispanic and why it’s important to celebrate the culture. I hope you enjoy!
