Getting to eat Latin food is just one of many. For a vehicle that captures the best of both worlds, there’s the All-New 2016 HR-V Crossover from Honda.

1. Your karaoke options are endless because you can sing in English...and in español.

Thinkstock, Apple Color

Being bilingual prompts you to explore your inner Elvis Crespo at any party or karaoke. So, whether you feel like singing Michael Jackson classics, following along to clever Calle 13 lyrics, or turning up to Selena in the most ~romantic~ of languages, you have a bunch of musical options.

2. Your culinary expertise extends beyond ordinary limits.

You can probably cook food that's popular in the U.S. like nobody's business, but you also have some knowledge about ingredients found in Latin American gastronomy that allows you to fuse flavors to create some delicious stuff, like hamburguesas with Oaxaca cheese, pizza with palmitos, and all sorts of other new concoctions.

3. You have more ways to satisfy your sweet tooth than anyone else.

Bagels and donuts make life sweeter for all but, when you're Latino, hitting up the divine temple of baked goodies (also known as a "panadería") is the way to go. Conchas, pan de queso, churros, empanadas, tequeños...the list of Latino world wonders is long and varied — and best paired with a cafecito.

4. You can dance to multiple genres, pero, like, con ritmo.

Thinkstock

Latinos dance when they hear music, much like people sneeze when their nose itches. From the moment baby-you is driven home form the hospital with Juan Gabriel playing in the car, music becomes part of your life: Your mom cleans while blasting salsa, your abuelita wants to hear Pedro Infante 24/7, your cousin loves to "rap"...and thus eventually you end up with enviable moves. 😉

5. You get to celebrate holidays in two different ways.

Halloween is a ton of fun, but some Latinos also celebrate Día de los Muertos, where they honor their loved ones who have passed away by setting up wonderfully colorful altars. Mexicans, for example, enjoy a little pan de muerto, a sweet roll typically made on the days approaching the holiday.

6. And, yup, the holidays extend for a whiiiiile.

2 Thinkstock

Most Latinos have huge family get-togethers (and traditional feasts) during Christmas, but also celebrate Día de los Reyes on January 6. As usual, tantalizing dishes are a big part of the celebration — the main delicacy being a scrumptious Rosca de Reyes (which is similar to King Cake, only perhaps more delicious!).

7. You can appreciate TV to a fuller (more dramatic) degree.

5 Thinkstock

Sure, you can watch a game show and it'll be aight, but there's nothing like enjoying a novela with a well-written plot. The thing is: Novelas aren't just novelas, they are a way of life; they are what you watch when you want to immerse yourself in a world of fantasy so intense and hyperrealistic your body will be shaking from the nervous exhaustion of seeing Federico del Castillo pursue Mariana instead of Esmeralda, even though you know Mariana is clearly the one for him.

8. Oh, and can we talk international sports? 'Cause you get to root for TWO teams.

2 Thinkstock

Unless you are very Americanized, you're going to cheer for your home country's team — but, if they're out, you can just root for for the U.S. (or vice versa)! This applies to the many competitions that occur globally. Most of the time, you have one team or athlete to default to, which makes a lot of sporting events twice as exhilarating.

9. You have the power of ~perspective~.

3 Thinkstock

Chances are that either you or someone in your family made a serious move which gave you the opportunity to view the world from the perspective of two cultures: the one you inherited, and the one you are now part of. You certainly enjoy the U.S., but when you think of the scents, colors, and people of the country you come from, you know you are lucky to be part of two worlds.

10. You learn to be individualistic, but also understand that strong community ties are important.

Thinkstock

The ways of the U.S. undoubtedly teach you about being your own person and doing your own thing, but your roots are all about having strong familial bonds and being close to other Latinos in your community. You appreciate having the freedom to explore your own path, yet will always choose to remain close to your family.

11. You appreciate your cultural heritage in a unique way.

As a Latino, you represent a large minority, one overflowing with cultural wealth and diversity. Being in the U.S., your sense of pride heightens, and you really feel the Latino blood running through your veins. You are grateful for the opportunities America offers, but you never forget — and truly treasure — where you come from.
