What could be better than great Mexican food and a Margarita?!?
Have a great day, my peeps.
or Happy Kinko de Mayo as I prefer to say ;-)
Damn... we had Margaritas yesterday and Cosmos today... I taught pet to make them on the wrong days obviously!
Now I just wanna Taco Bell.... :sad0147:
Ole'! We had Taco Bell for dinner last night!!
Dont mean to sound stupid, but what is this cinco de mayo??
Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for "fifth of May") is a voluntarily-observed holiday that commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Segun. It is celebrated primarily in the state of Puebla and in the United States. While Cinco de Mayo has limited significance nationwide in Mexico, the date is observed in the United States and other locations around the world as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's Independence Day, the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico.
Thanks for the reply TCFun
I think i'll crack open a corona
Gotta luv wikipedia
LOL....This is one of those threads where I hear My little voice saying Shut up Michelle
But yet you didn't - LOL
LOL, Maybe....but I didnt say what I was thinking!
Totally off subject, but Dan said this to me yesterday: "Jen, I wanted to tell you this before I forget.... May the 4th be with you." He's such a geek. =)
a BATTLE won, but
a lost war. I don't begrudge anyone for choosing to celebrate, but I find it interesting that this was a war LOST by Mexico....How can it be thought of as their "Independance Day"?
I suppose we could celebrate the Tet Offensive on January 31st......
It isn't their Independence Day, hun.
IMHO, it's just a time to celebrate heritage and have some fun. Have some fabulous Mexican food and good drink Isn't that why St. Patrick's Day is so great? Everyone is Irish on March 17th and everyone has some Hispanic in them on May 5th. (although, it may be hard to pull off for some of us albino folk ) :HappyDay:
