Introduction History Used to be exploited by foreign entities since the 1500's (Spaniards, the Catholic Church, etc) Mexican peoples believe that hardship is a core part of many of their traditions Fiestas are meant to be a way of relief from those said hardships History Overview The Fiesta Itself What is a fiesta? Mexican way of "enjoying the simple pleasures of life" Lots of traditional foods, dances, and attire Can celebrate culture, get intoxicated, or both!
