Balloons, cake, and a piñata are great on your birthday, but what about a serenata? The tradition of serenatas is dying, but it’s up to us to bring it back.

Serenatas are the Latino version of singing telegrams.

And let’s face it, don’t we ALL want more Latino things to enjoy?

They’re old-school which means super cool vintage nowadays.

Sure. You can make a playlist for your baby, but how much more exciting to give her the gift her mother’s suitors gave? #mamiwouldbeproud

They’re guaranteed to make an impression no matter who’s around.

From the neighbor screaming because it’s too loud to your baby cry with joy, everyone is impacted by their presence.

Serenatas can be hired for so many different occasions from quinces….

To your inevitable weddings.

Your significant other will never forget it.

And it will become a story you can tell your children as they grow up.

They have the words you don’t to describe how you feel.

Some times all you can come up with is “I love you” while they can come up with “I love you because you make my heart sing.” See?

It would be a total surprise because no one uses serenatas anymore.

It’s a proud tradition that is unfortunately dying before our eyes.

They make women, men, children, tus tías, all very happy.

Just look at abuelita’s face.^^

They are as culturally relevant as La Reina and we all still love her, right?
