As a little girl, watching novelas was a family affair at my house. Once 8pm hit, my mom, sister and cousins would quickly gather around the TV to watch our favorite novela. It didn’t matter if all the plots were pretty much the same—you know, where the poor girl falls in love for the rich guy. We enjoyed watching them. Eventually as I grew older, I couldn’t help but replace novelas with American shows such as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Saved by The Bell. The other day, in one of my early morning breastfeeding sessions, I came across a rerun of the novela MariMar while flipping through the TV. I couldn’t help but get nostalgic and remember those simple days of watching novelas with my family.
Here are some of my all-time favorite novelas I watched growing up as a kid. Did you watch any of these? Which novela did you watch growing up?
