  8. All right, class. And who can tell me what we celebrate on 5 de Mayo?

    Now off to google, those inclined, and yes, I do know, but it would hardly be courteous of me to deprive you all of the pleasure of reading all about it for yourselves!

    I will be checking answers very carefully, but the fight festivities may go late, so you have until tomorrow.

  9. It's not Mexican Independence Day, as most of us think :nuts:

    To me, it's "drink lots of Corona with lime" day :graucho:
     
  10. Shimma, wasn't it to celebrate Mexico's victory in some sort of battle {against the French}?


    {SEE? That's my answer without googling it.}



    Happy Cinco de Mayo, Ladies {and Gents}!
     
  11. Happy Cinco de Mayo. My husband's mom is Mexican and I really should have paid attention when they told me this BUT...I think it was a battle against the French who had put Maximillian in power? You see you should listen to your mother in law, I could have actually gotton this right here.

  13. for those that want to know: http://www.mexonline.com/cinco-de-mayo.htm

    The holiday of Cinco De Mayo, The 5th Of May, commemorates the victory of the Mexican militia over the French army at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862.
     
  14. I think I might have to take the kiddies over to Rubio's for dinner and have a Corona.......good thing it's in walking distance so I won't be driving!!
     
  15. It's funny how it's not a major holiday in Mexico. Maybe in Puebla, but the rest of Mexico just goes on and watches Americans celebrate. When I studied in MX, people wondered why we celebrated Cinco de Mayo more than they did.
    I like an excuse to have a beer or two, so I don't care! :happydance:
