Sinko de Mayo

A holiday dedicated to drinking beer and eating greasy food deserves our support, no matter where it came from.

I like Obama's holiday, "Quatro de Cinco" which he celebrates around this time.

I'm with Fat Man. For me, May 5 has always been an excuse to drink tequila and eat burritos. Not that I need an excuse, but I'll take one if one is available.

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, and, along with many other friends and acquaintances from Latin America (including a Mexican!), didn't know about 5 de mayo until quite recently.

But it's a nice day for a celebration. Skol!

Just like St Patrick's day, it's essentially a 'holiday' popularized by the alcohol companies.

Its a beer holiday, created by advertisers. Mexicans really don't care much about the day - or didn't until told they should, I suppose, but it sells a lot of beer.

Oddly, enough, Cinco de Mayo is celebrated north of the border, not south of it, for the most part. Mexican Independence Day (from Spain) is in September. Cinco de Mayo commemorates the throwing off of a dictator, although most celebrants here in New Mexico are generally too drunk to tell you who, what, when and where. If they ever knew. . .
