El Día de Acción de Gracias para la gente de Norteamérica es una de las festividades mas importantes, es día de reunirse con toda la familia y dar gracias por las cosas buenas que les sucedieron durante el año. Eso es algo digno de emular ya que es una tradición muy bonita y muy noble. Ya que los mexicanos nos caracterizamos por mantener la familia unida porque creemos firmemente que es la base de nuestra sociedad y esta tradición se me hace un puente muy bonito para integrarnos a la cultura americana sin despegarnos de la nuestra como latinos.

English translation:
Thanksgiving is one of the most important celebrations for people in North America, it’s a day to get together with the whole family and give thanks for the good things that have happened during the year. This is something worth emulating as it’s a very beautiful and noble tradition. Since Mexicans take pride in keeping the family together, firm in our belief that it’s the foundation of our society, this tradition for me is a very nice bridge to integrate into the American culture without distancing us from ours as Latinos.
