Why is there a cross on the construction site?


May Third is celebrated as the Day of the Cross by all construction workers in Mexico. This tradition includes the placement of a cross on the construction sites in order to secure blessings during the course of the construction.

In addition, the builder or contractor offers food and drink to all workers as the culmination of the celebration.
So now you know!
