Cinco de Mayo is about drinking margaritas and enjoying some chips and salsa on the 5th of May each year. OK, it is a little more then that, Cinco de Mayo is celebrated in honor of Mexico’s victory in the Battle of Pueblo in 1862. Unfortunately, most Americans know nothing about the Battle of Pueblo, so I am sticking with my first reason. Cinco de Mayo is about the margaritas. I’ll take mine frozen please.
