We Are TAO Newsletter / May 2015 / TAO Inspired Living

Dear TAO Family and Friends,

As always it is a pleasure to greet you each month. I would like to wish you all much success and prosperity in their personal and professional activities.

We are starting a month dedicated to remembering the noble and wise parenting tasks of our mothers. We wish you happiness and joy to all mothers of our community for their invaluable work and guidance.

I wish you a beautiful beginning of the month and lots of energy to enjoy this summer time fun and relaxation.

Here in the Riviera Maya the month of May is one of the busier months of the year, with a plethora of festivals and events. It seems like students barely set foot in school this month - what with labor day on the first, then Cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day and Teacher's Day following in quick succession. There's no shortage of cultural festivals, either, so you won't run out of things to do this month!

My quote of the month: Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love - Stevie Wonder.

Happy May

Isaac Henares
Operations Director

TAO Community Calendar / May 2015
Labor Day

Labor Day

Nationwide, May 1st

This is a national public holiday in Mexico. There are political and labor union marches and official speeches. Schools, banks and government offices are closed.


Day of the Holy Cross

This celebration dates back to colonial times. Construction workers decorate crosses with flowers and mount them on buildings under construction, and have picnics at the site, followed by fireworks.

Day of the Holy Cross
Cinco de mayo - Commemoration of the Battle of Puebla

Cinco de mayo – Commemoration of the Battle of Puebla

Throughout the country, but particularly in Puebla, May 5th

Cinco de Mayo is annually observed on May 5. It celebrates the defeat of the French army during the Battle of Puebla (Batalla de Puebla) in Mexico on May 5, 1862. It is not to be confused with Mexico's Independence Day.


Mother’s Day

Nationwide, May 10th

Mother's Day is always celebrated on May 10th in Mexico, regardless of the day of the week (unlike in the U.S. where it is celebrated on the second Sunday in May). Mothers are held in very high esteem in Mexican culture and on this day they are celebrated in style. The day may start off with serenades of Las Mañanitas, schools have festivals in honor of the mothers of students and restaurants are packed as moms take the day off from cooking and are treated to a meal out with their families.

Mother's Day
Teacher's Day

Teacher’s Day

Nationwide, May 15th

Usually classes are suspended on this day - so teachers get the day off, or there will be a small party and students give their teachers gifts as a sign of their appreciation.


Sacred Mayan Journey
