29 Signs You Grew Up In A Mexican Household

Here's the game: If you can relate to ten items on this list, CONGRATULATIONS! You are a certified Mexican.

9. You wrote to "Los Reyes Magos" instead of Santa Claus.

Los Tres Reyes Magos (The Three Wise Men). On January 5th, you'd write a letter to the Magos and then put it in a shoe. You leave the shoe at your doorstep and in the morning, you'd get your presents. Probably a way for your parents to take advantage of after-Christmas sales.

10. On every January 6th, you ate bread with baby figurines stuck inside.

It's called a rosca. If you get the figurine, it's your job to make tamales in February. Kids didn't care. They just wanted a new toy.

20. Your parents hated this guy:

Carlos Salinas de Gortari (President of Mexico from 1988-1994) A.K.A one of the most corrupt Mexican presidents of all time (and that bar is set very high).

29. You heared this song at every party.
