- When we eat at home during these parties, we spend an average of 6,500 pesos. If we buy the cooked food it will go up to about 10,700.
The National alliance of small traders ((ANPEC) conducted a market survey to account for the cost of this festive marathon (Christmas, New Years, Rosca de Reyes and Tamales de Candelaria), which is colloquially known as the “Guadalupe Candelaria”.
In this pandemic-hit 2020, we are not going to stop enforcing our traditions, but we must do it by following the necessary prevention protocols to avoid the spread of the virus that increases infections and deaths. The slogan is easy to understand: cLet’s get up without getting sick.
“Let’s raise awareness, we are following the call of the WHO, so that these end-of-year celebrations are carried out with maximum prevention. Let’s celebrate with our family core from the same city (meeting with no more than 10 people), we rehabilitate the social area, if we try not to cook in a group and keep washing our hands, let’s take better care of our older and younger adults, ”said Cuauhtémoc Rivera, President of ANPEC.
“Let’s not abuse alcohol or food, keep a healthy distance, and use these meetings to support family unit bonds, remember what we have experienced and project tasks ahead. The best of us is always at home with us, love cannot be bought. At the end of the year we will have a real family reunion that will fill us with positive energy and encouragement to continue and defeat this COVID-19 pandemic, ”added Rivera.
These are times of coexistence, of family unity, but without lowering our watch. Let us remember: We take care of ourselves, we take care of others, we all take care of ourselves.
Next we present the overview of the prices of the products that we will buy for these celebrations for up to 10 people:
