~TURKEYS LOVE PUERTO RICO~

BEST PLACE FOR PARDONS

PERNIL, PASTELES AND MORE

There’s no best place for Thanksgiving than a Puerto Rican household.

Yesterday, by chance, I was lucky enough to be invited to a second dinner.

First one with family, second one with Puerto Rican friends.

You will correctly imagine which one was more fun and which one delighted the taste buds!!

National Thanksgiving Turkey Presentation is a ceremony that takes place at the White House every year shortly before Thanksgiving. The President of the United States is presented with a live domestic turkey by the National Turkey Federation, usually of the Broad Breasted White variety.

The ceremony dates back to the 1940s, with presidents occasionally sparing the bird presented to them; since 1989, during George H. W. Bush’s first Thanksgiving as president, it has been an annual tradition for the president to “pardon” the turkey.

PUERTO RICAN WOMEN

I’m a proud Boricua woman

My heritage comes from Taíno, Spanish and African roots.

All of which I’m very proud of.

Many came before me … and in 1950, I was born!

The recorded history of women in Puerto Rico can trace its roots back to the era of the Taíno, the indigenous people of the Caribbean, who inhabited the island that they called “Borikén” before the arrival of Spaniards. During the Spanish colonization the cultures and customs of the Taíno, Spanish, African and women from non-Hispanic European countries blended into what became the culture and customs of Puerto Rico.

In the early part of the 19th Century the women in Puerto Rico were Spanish subjects and had little individual rights. Those who belonged to the upper class of the Spanish ruling society had better educational opportunities then those who did not. However, there were many women who were already active participants in the labor movement and in the agricultural economy of the island.

After Puerto Rico was ceded to the United States in 1898 as a result of the Spanish–American War, women once again played an integral role in Puerto Rican society by contributing to the establishment of the University of Puerto Rico, women’s suffrage, women’s rights, civil rights, and to the military of the United States.

During the period of industrialization of the 1950’s, many women in Puerto Rico found employment in the needle industry, working as seamstresses in garment factories. Many Puerto Rican families also migrated to the United States in the 1950’s.

The cemetery is located outside the walls of Fort San Felipe del Morro fortress, one of the island’s most famous landmarks. The average height of the wall is 40 feet and the width ranges from 15 to 20 feet.

One Year Ago Today …. “🇵🇷🌴 I posted This on Facebook …. After Hurricane María 🌴🇵🇷 …. “!!

ONE YEAR AGO TODAY 

~FACEBOOK MEMORIES~

🇵🇷💞🇵🇷 … ONE YEAR AGO TODAY … I POSTED THIS!! 🇵🇷💞🇵🇷

Hi! My name is Horty Rexach.

I am Puerto Rican and I grew up in an island (according to the president of the US Virgin Islands) in the middle of the ocean.

Surrounded by water. Big water.

A lot of water!

PTFl

Oh! … and we ARE American citizens, not by choice but rather by imposition.

We have been American citizens since 1917 because there was no other option.
My people have served in the might U.S. of A. military forces since 1917.

Yep, citizenship was imposed in the beginning of World War One. 

1917

We speak both English and Spanish.

The Puerto Rican people receive $22.5 million dollars in social help as well as subsidies from the American government.

However, we produce around $77 million dollars toward the economy of the mighty U.S. of A.

PRDEal

Why do we have two last names?

No Puerto Rican woman loses her last name when she marries because we don’t want to forget our very own mothers.

We are an archipelago (because we are not only a small island – we have Culebra, Vieques, Isla de Mona and several others).

The geography of Puerto Rico consists of an archipelago located between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, east of the Dominican Republic and west of the Virgin Islands.

The main island of Puerto Rico is the smallest and most eastern of the Greater Antilles.

Our small archipielago, surrounded by big water, provides more members to the military forces per capita than ANY other state of the Union!!

Our Island has produced astronauts, NASA engineers, scientists, a Judge in the US Supreme Court, a recipient of a Medal of Honor, 5 Miss Universe crowns, the Borinqueneers (65th Infantry Division – google this one), Oscar and Grammy recipients, athletes, actors of world fame and many more distinguished citizens who call our beautiful Island HOME.

We are a beautiful and interesting mix of Spanish (European), African and Taíno blood. This mix gives us an incredible drive to survive.

Nothing Breaks our Boricua Spirit

NOTHING!!

We do not fit in any BOX. 

Biologist says Puerto Rican women possess the ideal genotype of the ‘Perfect‘ human via DNA ancestry.

It is a fact that this genetic composition represents the human race because of its wide heritage of races.
#PuertoRicoStrong … 🇵🇷 … ¡Weeepa!

I am Puerto Rican and I’m damn proud of it!!
