Holidays and Celebrations

San Miguel, like most of Mexico, loves a good fiesta. There is always something to celebrate in San Miguel de Allende. And that is why we love it so! Below we have put together a list of the holidays and celebrations we think your kids will enjoy the best and some tips on how to get the most out of them. Make sure to check out our Facebook page for updated dates, locations, and new events.

New Years Eve

December 31st 

New Year’s in Mexico is a family oriented day. You will find that many have a family dinner, followed by midnight mass and the traditional eating of the 12 grapes for good luck (a fun tradition to adopt - one grape per wish for the coming year) If your kids are old enough, and up for staying up past midnight, we recommend you go see the beautiful firework show in El Jardin. Yes, it's packed. Yes, it's crazy. Yes, it will be cold. But, yes, it's worth it. You can expect a full-blown firework, light show, and concert. The energy in the Jardin is palpable and this will be a night your kids won't forget.  If you want to have dinner beforehand you (check out our restaurant guide) will want to make reservations far in advance and be aware that most restaurants have a set menu for the occasion.

Three Kings Day 

January 6th 

Just when you thought the holiday season was over and you could relax, Three Kids days will creep up on you! Three Kings Day is the traditional Mexican gift-giving day for children. Families will eat Rosca de Reyes (a traditional…) that has a little plastic baby Jesus inside to decide who will throw a party to celebrate the arrival of spring. The parade you won’t want to miss usually starts at around 6 pm. It will feature a live cast of Jesus and Mary, and of course, the Three Kings.. Because so many of our kids' friends and classmates receive gifts this day we usually save one small gift from Christmas to give on this day. (And one year we forgot and gave $200 pesos and, I won’t lie, they might prefer it!)
