When was the last time that you began celebrating a holiday that you didn’t celebrate as a child? For me, the last time I added a holiday celebration to my life as an adult was when I was in my late 30s and decided that I wanted my children to appreciate and celebrate Day of the Dead and pass that tradition on to their children if they choose to have any.
Now, I haven’t done any formal research on the topic, but I’d say that most adults tend to celebrate the same holidays that they celebrated as children. For example, I celebrate Christmas on December 24 because my family is of Mexican descent and Mexican Christmas – yes, Mexican Christmas is totally a thing – is on December 24. My husband, who is not of Mexican descent, grew up celebrating Christmas on December 25 and no matter how often I try to convince him that Mexican Christmas is the only Christmas we need, he insists that Christmas is really only Christmas on December 25.
