Happy Cinco De Mayo

This morning I was getting dressed and just randomly grabbed a t-shirt out of my closet to put on. It is an Old Navy tee that says “Cinco de Mayo” on it. Get it? Today is May 5th…cinco de mayo! Can you believe that? I can’t. I really can’t. I wonder if I can get my “Tuesday May 6th” shirt back from the dry- cleaners by tomorrow? That would be insane. Oh well…happy cinco de mayo.

    What’s the holiday about anyway? I’m from Ireland originally and only found out about this holiday 30 minutes ago.

    Being from Texas, I actually do know that cinco de mayo is Mexico’s independence day…I think.

    Hey Bart – this is from wikipedia – “A common misconception in the United States is that Cinco de Mayo is Mexico’s Independence Day; Mexico’s Independence Day is actually September 16 (dieciséis de septiembre in Spanish), which is the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico.”

    I live in Mexico, and the funny thing is that it’s not really celebrated here, except in Puebla. I was watching Fox News this morning and had to laugh at them with their maracas, sombreros, and mariachi band. It’s all a marketing ploy to get you guys to go to eat Mexican food (which it’s NOT, by the way), and to buy Old Navy shirts.

    Cinco De Mayo day has something to do with the Mexican army defeating the French. If I remember correctly I think the French were trying to take over Mexico or at least a part of it. I’m sure I probably left out something but hey its been a long time since I was in school.

    Anyway, Happy Cinco De Mayo day!

    isn’t wikipedia the website where anyone can write anything they want to about anything and say it’s true???

  • Alastair

    Uh.. yeah. That’s wikipedia alright. Ok, maybe someone should edit the page now and fix that glaring mistake?
