I’ve been celebrating Cinco de Mayo for the past 25 years. That’s approximately how long I’ve been 21 and able to legally order a margarita (on the rocks, of course) with a plate of chips and salsa! But what am I celebrating? What event took place on May 5th that was so monumental it became synonymous with that date? Truth is, I really don’t know. I bet most of us don’t. It seems like it has something to do with Mexico and a revolution but I’m not even sure about that. It’s sad to think about all of the holidays and events we celebrate without a clue as to why. I think I might set my frozen concoction down for minutes and educate myself. Maybe we all should.
