Mexico is a secular country, having no official religion. However, it is Roman Catholic in its majority: Christmas is a national holiday and during Easter most people leave for vacations. Other Catholic religious days such as January 6 (Epiphany) or December 12 (Our Lady of Guadalupe, saint patron of Mexico) are observed by many people.
Following are some estimates for religion practices in Mexico:
Note: Because of rounding, percentages may not add up to 100% (or 112 million, the population of Mexico).
Muslims in Mexico:
Islam religion arrived in Mexico with either Lebanese or Syrian immigrants and some other Middle Easterners like Egyptians, Iranians, and Turks. According to the 2010 census conducted by the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI) there were 3,760 Muslims in the country (that means less than 1% of total Mexico population).

Mexico is a very complex country, full of local, regional and national traditions, such as in the United States or any western country for that matter. Mexico is considered to be 'the land of the three cultures' because it is a mix of three of them:
Then, traditions can be classified on two large classes: religious and idiosyncrasy or 'particular behavior' of Mexican people. Some religious traditions include:
While traditions of general nature, more akin to Mexicans as a group include:
No. The Spanish language came from Spain as did some of the religion. However, other languages, food, dance, dress, and other religions are from indigenous peoples or imported slaves.
The same things Americans do, which mostly depends on their own wealth:
People who stay at home usually watch TV (there is satellite TV as well as cable), or listen to many varieties of Mexican music, such as norteÃ±a, cumbia or salsa. Pop and foreign music are also popular, but on a lesser degree and mostly listened to on larger cities. People who have a higher purchasing power and who own a DVD or Blueray, rent movies to watch them -- Blockbuster is still operating in Mexico. Those who own a PC or a SmartTV and Internet connection, surf the Web or watch movies via Netflix and other videostreaming operators.
Youngsters usually play videogames (Xbox and Playstation are popular), but in case their parents don't have money for such amenities, they usually hang out with friends, attend parties or play outdoor sports such as soccer or basketball (see related questions).
Many people relax on open spaces on their free time, such as public parks an plazas. For instance, the Chapultepec Park in Mexico city is very popular, as it has a big Zoo, some child playgrounds, lots of green space and the Castle and Museum at the top of the Chapultepec Hill, in the middle of the park. It also has an artificial lake, where many people rent small paddled boats.
Many others go to the local bazaars (Spanish: mercados sobre ruedas) where they can find cheap clothes, small jewelry or things such as toys, music CDs or handcrafts. Other people go to the malls, just as Americans do. There, they could buy some stuff, see or rent some movies, and eat at the food courts or at the fancier restaurants within the mall complexes. One example of these is the Angelopolis Mall (Centro Comercial Angelopolis) in the City of Puebla.
On small towns, usually on Sundays at the central plaza or zocalo, it is common to find small fairs (Spanish: ferias) where food and small farm products are sold; amusement rides such as Ferris wheels (ruedas de la fortuna), or bumper cars (carritos chocones) are installed.
People with more money on their pockets could travel to other cities to visit relatives and/or look for the local amenities. They usually travel by car, but bus and airplane are also common. Many people travel across federal roads or highways, just as many Americans do, visiting small towns and eating or staying the night at the local inn (Spanish: posada).
People with even more money could go to resort cities, such as Cuernavaca, Veracruz or Acapulco, where beaches, pools and night life are the main attraction; conversely, many people from smaller cities go to the larger ones (Tijuana, Mexico City, Monterrey) for their night life, enjoying bars and clubs. People with higher purchasing power go to more expensive cities such as Los Cabos, Cancun or the Mayan Riviera, and even some leave the country for places like Orlando (Florida), Cuba or Europe.
There are of course many other attractions, which would include theaters, movie theaters, circus, libraries, cafes and many more that are common to any Western country.
See the related links section for some examples of these amenities in Mexico.

Frida Kahlo was born a man whose hair grew upside down, so she had a mustache above her eyes and eyebrows under her nose
LOL at the previous answer
no that isn't correct she just didn't want to change her looks.
Mexican people usually wear the same clothes Americans do, specially among big cities like Mexico City, Guadalajara or Monterrey. These include shirts, blouses and t-shirts, khakis or jeans, skirts and tennis shoes or formal footwear. In business environments, suit and tie are also common, but in cities with warmer climates like Monterrey (24-28 °C / 75-83 °F), those suits are made of light cotton or jute (see related links), which are much fresher than standard cotton or wool suits. Rural people wear cotton shirts and pants; sometimes they use Texan hats but caps are much more common. No sombreros or ponchos at all.
On special occasions such as festivals and patron saint festivities, there are many typical dresses depending on the region: for Jalisco and the so-called "Bajio" region, it is not uncommon to see people dressed as mariachis; in southern Mexico you can find women wearing the so-called huipil or tehuana dresses - there are examples of such dresses in the related links section. Many people in the northern regions wear jeans, Texan hats and boots, like many south western Americans do. On the southeastern Yucatan peninsula, the "Mexican wedding shirt" or guayabera is very common.
According to the Guadalupe tradition, a poor Indian named Juan Diego saw a vision of the Virgin Mary on 9 December 1531, at the place in Tepeyac where there had been a temple of Tonantzin, 'Mother of the Gods'. She asked him to have a chapel built there in her honour. In 1648 a book about the vision and the image that appeared on the peasant's cloak was written by a priest named Miguel Sanchez. If the book was actually based on what Father Sanchez believed to to have occurred a little over a hundred years earlier, then Our Lady of Guadalupe may well be the same as Mary.

The track is Samba Pa Ti which is off the 1970's album 'Abraxas' by Santana. www.bebo.com/meanratio
yes. carlos Santana is an entrepreneur. he creates shoes and handbags
To be exact Im a police officer James C. ltt. Surenos are more stronger in the South because there isn't any Nortenos.In the North Surenos and Nortenos Are equal there is many of Surenos all over the Bay they have done drive-bys,Stabbings,Taggings,Raiding house's,Theft,Raping,and Drug dealing.Nortenos have many members as well,but they are not as active as the Surenos.The Nortenos have done stabbings,taggings,theft,and jumping rival gangs and drug dealing,so the answer is Surenos are more stronger than Nortenos.
U gotta get put on the set by initiation.

No. Norteno is spanish for "Northerner" who represent Northern California, they opposite the Sureno's which is spanish for "Southerner". There are Sureno gangs in Northern California but no Norteno gangs in Southern California. When you get locked up you eother claim to be a resident or a banger, if you're a banger then you either claim South Side or North Side. If you are neutral you just say "I am a resident from Los Angeles."
There are NO norteno varrio's in Los Angeles and/or Southern California
The "Two Fridas" painting was painted in 193.
