My object is a jarrito, which translates to mug in Spanish. It was made in Mexico where my father was born. My grandmother brought a few with her from her trip to Mexico, which she does every other year. My grandmother brought them over so that we may get together more and bond as a family. In Mexico during the holiday season families get together to eat, bond, and drink atole from the jarritos to help keep warm in the frigid weather. This object is important to my family because it reminds us to value our family and respect one another.
