If I could only do one thing to celebrate Chile’s Birthday…
September 18, 2012 is Chile’s 202nd anniversary. Happy Birthday, Chile!
This week in Chile is known as the Fiestas Patrias. The entire country and all Chileans have a big party. Don’t expect much work to get done but you can expect people to be in a generally good mood.
Chileans celebrate the Fiestas Patrias with many different traditions, events, foods, and celebrations. The collection of all these elements is what makes this time in Chile so special.
However, if I only had to pick one thing to celebrate Chile’s birthday, it would be to have a Chilean Asado (barbecue). This iconic Chilean tradition offers a forum for visiting with friends and enjoying some amazing Chilean food. I can almost taste the grilled meats now.
The Chilean Asado wraps up great food traditions and the Chilean’s love of family and friends in one big package. It is the perfect way to celebrate Chile’s birthday.
Here’s a list of things you can do to celebrate Chile’s independence.
