Mexican Courtesy and Hospitality

The courtesy and hospitality of the Mexican people have never been affected or changed by the rush of life in the United States, regardless of the economic level, or the amount of education a Mexican posseses. Courtesy is still a chief characteristic of the older Mexican residents of the local colony. Frequently, goods will be purchased from a peddler which are not desired rather than give offence by refusal, or to appear discourteous.

Regardless of how busy a host or hostess may be, the Mexican never expresses by word or action the slightest impatience at the length of your call. The hospitable Mexican offers his best to the guest. The best chair, the best bed, the best food and the head of the table is reserved for the guest. Deference to the slightest desire of a guest is always shown, regardless of the discomforts of the remainder of the family group. - LaHabra Star News- 1932
