3 Interesting Facts

1- Mexico is the 14th largest country by land area

2- Mexican children do not receive presents on Christmas Day. They receive gifts on January 6, the day on which Mexicans celebrate the arrival of the Three Wise Men.

3- Only ten countries in the world have a larger population than Mexico’s 109,955,400 people.


  1. Hi Faye!

    Wow what interesting facts! I never knew that Mexico had the 11th highest population? It must be such a busy country. No doubt you'll be learning a lot during your learning journey :-)

    That's a cool Christmas Day fact! I know that Mexico is a very religious country, so it's interesting learning all about different cultural customs for holidays like Christmas. I wonder what kind of food they eat to celebrate? Do you think it turkey or ham like some people do here, or maybe something different?

    Great fact hunting Faye. Another really enjoyable blog to read :-)

    Happy holidays!

  2. Hi Faye,

    These are really interesting facts! I had no idea that Mexican families traditionally give gifts on 6 January rather than on 25 December. You are teaching both Dan and I new things. We love it!

    We would also love it if you were able to hop back online this year and post more of your great blogs. I can't wait to see what you will discover next on your journey through Mexico...

    Until next time,

    Rachel :)
