Thanksgiving is not a Mexican festivity, I’m not going to pretend it is, at least not a traditional one. At least not everywhere.
In the north of the country, crossing the line that divides Mexico and the USA becomes a usual activity for citizens of both countries, people walk to both directions of that line, two seas of people clashing, mixing with each other, becoming one.
As is true that many Mexican festivities and traditions have been adopted by the people living on the other side of the river, is also true on this side. As people come, some return and some never leave, and in their baggage, they bring their world, their traditions, and their culture. The closest you are to this magic, arbitrary, line on the floor, the more you see this change, the more you get used to the vision of a foreigner turned local. Los Cabos may not be over that line, but it definitely is close enough.
Los Cabos is a beautiful place, a place that proudly shows paradisiacal landscapes to those who come to visit, and gives itself the luxury of hiding some for those who want to stay and search. It’s easy to see how people who visit decide to never leave.
Thanksgiving is not a Mexican festivity, but it is a festivity in Los Cabos, dozens of restaurants and places put on special events and celebrations for those who want to spend the day outside. Or you can have a traditional dinner at home, many people here do.
And, as the current writer for Los Cabos Guide, thank you for reading. Thank you for deciding my words are worth your time, thank you for taking those words and granting them a voice, for allowing them to fill your mind for a few seconds, and hopefully, if I did my job, for allowing me to share a bright new idea or a pleasant emotion. Thank you for being the ears that prevent me from screaming into the void. Thank you.
