You’ll be Thrilled with So Much Fun Expat Stuff at Lake Chapala to Do!
November 19, 2015
Hi Everyone, Sid Grsovenor here, Your Lake Chapala Information Guy and Buyer’s Only Realtor. Retired Gringos here not only enjoy a very low cost of living, year around great weather, and all sorts of cultural activities associated with Mexico and her centuries old customs and celebrations we get to share with them, but we gringos are adding our 2 cents worth to culture here as well.
For example we enjoy many of the holidays that other further North, North Americans enjoy like Thanksgiving.
We recently celebrated the “Day of the Dead’ where Mexican families set up a place in their home or business to honor departed loved ones. The younger set here have in more recent years combined this time of year into their version of Holloween and go from house to house and business to business after dark dressed in home made costumes of all sorts soliciting “candy and other assorted goodies”. But, there’s rarely any trick played on those homes or businesses that don’t participate.
The retired gringos here have also have begun a yearly tradition of sorts around this time of year that I’ll share with the you in the cute video below.
Here’s how the author of the below video filmed on the Ajijic Plaza describes this event on the You Tube page where it was posted,
“Thrill The World is friends, family and local residents who, each year, join together with thousands of people around the globe to celebrate Michael Jackson’s talent by dancing simultaneously to “Thriller”. Thriller In Ajijic 2015 features 61 zombies dancing in the plaza while fundraising for Cruz Roja Chapala”
OK, with all that as a buackground here’s the video… Siempre tu amigo, Sid
