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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
