Happy Cinco de Mayo.!! Feliz Cinco de Mayo.!! I hope everyone had a great weekend and enjoyed the company of their family and friends.!! As you know today is Cinco de Mayo.! As I have mentioned before in this blog, this holiday commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over the French during the “Batalla de Puebla” or Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War in 1862. Outside of the city of Puebla, very few festivities are held for this celebration in other Mexican cities. However, it’s a whole other story when you get to the United States.
In the U.S., Cinco de Mayo is the holiday Americans celebrate anything and everything Mexican. It is very similar to the way St. Patrick’s Day is used to celebrate everything and anything Irish in the states. However, in Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day is a day like any other. Therefore, when in Rome…or Chicago. I hope everyone enjoys their Cinco de Mayo celebrations.!! Don’t forget to indulge in some margaritas, tequilas, and cervezas..!! To get the festivities goings, let’s see how Dos Equis’ Most Interesting Man in the World celebrates Cinco de Mayo.! Enjoy.!! Y salud.!!
