This Saturday is ‘Children’s Day’ in Mexico, when you may hear the expression ‘Happy Dia de el Niño,’ and it’s also being celebrated at La Plaza, located at 23311 Pacific Highway South in Kent, from 3pm – 7pm.
According to the website Mexico Insights:
“Children’s Day has been a big deal in Mexico with parties, piñatas, outings, and gifts since its 1925 inception. How big a deal? The last Walmart advertising flier devoted the center 6-8 pages to Christmas-like displays of toys and games – this in a country where most children in working families receive just a couple of gifts for Christmas instead of the mountain of presents north of the border kids have come to expect.”
“And in some schools they give the day free or let the kids wear shorts and a colored shirt,” adds Wikipedia.
