Most often that is the Mexican Independence Sombrero (the traditional Mexican hat with large brim colored in national Mexican colors).Some Mexican women wear the traditional Mexican dress known as the Mexican peasant dress which is decorated with beautiful traditional Mexican embroidery.Also, some men are dressed in a Mexican macho stile (traditional Mexican pants, poncho and the sombrero) which is synonymous for the Mexican rebellious spirit.A side from the traditional Mexican clothing and decoration the big part of the Mexican Independence Day celebration is the authentic Mexican food, drinks and music.The Mexican food that is served in the Mexican streets can be best described as a variety of finger foods, which means the food is quite simple but delicious.The most popular Mexican beverage on that day is the Mexican punch which is a traditional Mexican drink made of fruits and often spiced with tequila. Of course the tequila is also very popular during the Mexican Independence Day celebration as well as the famous Mexican beer like the Corona and Sol.Each year on the night of September 15 at exactly 11 pm the Mexican president goes out onto the balcony of the National Palace in Mexico City rings the liberty bell (the same bell that Father Hidalgo rang in 1810) and cries out the words of the Grito to the Mexican people gathered in the square below who respond with "Viva"."Viva our heroes that gave us our freedom!""Viva!""Viva our father Hidalgo!""Viva!""Viva our Independence!""Viva!""Viva Mexico!""Viva!"This same Grito (the Cry) is echoed by the Governors of each Mexican state in front of the crowds gathered in the main squares.This event marks the beginning of the Mexican Independence Day which is the September 16th.Important thing to note is that it is common for the non-Mexicans that live in the United States to mistake the Cinco de Mayo holiday (that takes place on the fifth of May) with the Mexican Independence Day.Also, there are many non-Mexicans that mistake the September 15th for the Mexican Independence Day because the Mexican president rings the liberty bell on the eve of the September 15th.
