No matter where you may find yourself in the world, there are some things you will never forget if you were born and raised in Colombia.

And even if you have a totally different lifestyle now or are still enjoying the traditions of home, it’s safe to say that growing up in this vibrant nation is a totally unique experience.

Family is hugely important growing up here, which is why hundreds of thousands of Colombians send online mobile recharge to loved ones in Colombia, and the traditional food will always leave your mouth watering.

Here are some Colombian sayings and traditions you will know well if you grew up here:

Hot chocolate without cheese is strange

A steaming cup of hot chocolate in Colombian households is not complete without a healthy slab of ‘queso blanco’.

Even though people around the world may find the concept quite strange, to those born and raised here, it is pretty reminiscent of everyone’s childhood in Colombia.

You most definitely own a ‘sombrero vueltiao’

This is especially relevant to those Colombian who have since moved abroad.

This national symbol is something many Colombians hold close to their hearts and are proud to display on their person on important Colombian holidays no matter where they are in the world.

Because for all the things Colombians are, they are resolute patriots.

There isn’t a day that goes by that you don’t crave an arepa

Colombians could easily eat this tasty snack for every meal of their day.

A sweet ‘arepa de choclo’ is an ideal breakfast treat while a plain arepa can constitute the perfect snack.

And for dinner, an arepa stuffed with beef and cheese is the ideal way to cap the day. But one thing is for sure, arepas will never taste as good as they do at home.

Soccer (or Fútbol) matches are akin to public holidays

No matter where you are living, you cannot relieve your total dedication to the national Colombian team.

Witnessing a Colombian win can result in parties for days and is something every person has experienced gladly growing up here.
