Hispanic Culture and Heritage

"Heritage" is defined as the customs and traditions that are handed down from generation to generation of families and society. A person with Latino heritage is a descendant of a family from Mexico, Central America, or South America. Peeps who are Hispanic are from a country where Spanish is spoken. Let's check out some of their traditions.

Hispanic Food

Hispanic foods have many different characteristics, but one of the main things that make it distinctive is that it tends to be spicy! Here are some traditional Hispanic dishes:

  • Moles: Pronounced Mo-lay, the name of this dish comes from the Aztec word for "mixture." Mole Poblano de Guajolote, is a mixture of dried chiles, nuts, seeds, vegetables, spices and chocolate.
  • Tortillas: This flat bread is made of wheat flour or masa and forms the base of tons of tasty Mexican dishes like enchiladas, burritos and fajitas.
  • Ceviche: A Mexican dish of raw fish marinated in limejuice, often in a chopped salad.
  • Poc Chuc: A Yucatecan specialty made with pork fillet cooked with tomatoes, onions and spices.

Hispanic Arts

  • Mexican Basket Weaving: Basket weaving is a traditional Mexican craft.
  • Earthenware: Terra Cotta pots and sculpture are common Hispanic crafts. Terra Cotta is a hard semi-fired waterproof ceramic clay used in pottery and building construction.
  • Pinatas: A paper mache container that is decorated and filled with candy and toys. Pinata's are used as part of Christmas and birthday celebrations.

You know, I agree with your theory. I don't think I can put it into the well-thought and eloquent wording you did, but as vast as the human mind is, each individual one has its limits. Everyone clearly thinks different of what is wrong and what is right - Hitler did think that his actions were a good thing, didn't he?  The most evil thing I could think of certainly isn't KW appropriate. Then, expanding on that further, I figured that murder is probably one of the worst things a human can do. But then that got me thinking: what  if it's the other way around? Or, what if there is something even worse than both of those? Everything else that came to mind probably, most likely, isn't a KW kind of topic - and I'm sure my brain can't even come up with everything else disgraceful. Therefore, I don't think I can determine which is worse, as there are many things I find putrid - and some I can't even think of - and they're all quite horrible. So then the most good thing I thought of was angels. They're pure and holy, right? What can be even greater than that? The Lord, of course. To someone who believe ins Him, who or what is more just and righteous than that? This got me wondering what those who do not believe in Him would say. Charity work, perhaps? A newborn child who is yet to have experienced the awfulness of the world? An innocent domestic animal whose perception of the world is far different from ours? This was definitely really thought-provoking. I might have to think about this further sometime in the future.
