“Growing up in a Mexican American family, celebrations were HUGE and so important. I have a large extended family on both sides, and we always spent holidays and birthdays together with lots of food, kids, and fun! We had homemade tamales at Christmas, cascarones (confetti eggs) at Easter, and piñatas at birthday parties. Even now, I feel most connected to my cultural identity when I’m celebrating with some of the same foods and traditions, even if I’m not able to be with my family on the holiday. I spent last Easter with my childhood friend and her family, and we had the most epic cascaron battle, and I think the adults loved it as much as the kids!” – Kathi G.
