Criatura

Recommended Posts

 I'm looking at Registro Civil records for the early 1900s. When a child is born they say presentando una criatura. Does it seems odd to call the baby a creatura?

No. There are many Mexican phrases or words where the meaning comes from the tradition or custom of how it is used. It is not offensive. "We are all God's creatures."
