La Rosca

Relationship: Child of im/migrant

My object is La Rosca. First, it’s important to me because it shows my culture and it’s part of a Mexican Holiday. The holiday is called “Los Reyes Mayo”. Another reason it’s important to me is because that’s when all my family comes to my house to have fun and cut the bread. What’s special about this bread is that inside, there is a baby Jesus and if the slice you cut has it you have to clean or make food for a party that’s in February, the party is because of the holiday. Lastly why it’s important to me is that I have good memories with it each year. For example, one year my cousins and grandparents from Mexico came and celebrated with us and we were all having a good time and it brings the family together. That is why “La Rosca” tells an important story of mine.
