1. Invitations
From the moment you receive your invitation, you can tell that a typical U.S. Anglo party and a Latino party are going to be very different. Your typical Anglo birthday party invitation is like an official summons—it tells you exactly how to get to the party (including a map), when to arrive, when to leave, and often what your kids will do while they’re there. You are expected to adhere strictly to all the requirements in the invitation. Do not be late!
