Even if it’s just to sit at our family’s sala with a large plato of food—we’re still dressing to the nines because that’s how we do.

It might get loud.

But don’t get mad at them. They always mean well.

You’ll take selfies with everyone.


Even that vain cousin you secretly don’t like.

You will eat late.

Don’t expect to eat anytime before 9pm and if you get to eat at 9pm—consider yourself lucky.

Games will be played.

If you’re Mexican chances are it will be Lotería and if you’re Dominican, Puerto Rican or Cuban—there will be Dominoes!

People will get lit.

Because there’s always plenty of booze at Latino Thanksgiving dinners—coquito included!

The youth have learned to come prepared to answer the same annoying questions.


Because they know they’ll be asked if they have a boyfriend, if they have a new job and why haven’t they lost weight.

Dominicans will have platanos.

We’re talking everything from platano maduro, tostones, pasteles, arroz con guadunles, pernil—it will all be there and more.
