Cinco de Mayo!

Mexican Flag circa. 1862

So, Guy, Happy Cinco de Mayo!

We, in America, tend to be uninformed, thinking Cinco de Mayo’s celebrating Mexican Independence (September 16th), when it actually celebrates Mexico’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla May 5th, 1862.

Yeah, we dog on illegals coming here and whatnot, but we have to understand this holiday isn’t about current politics, parades, eats, and getting drunk off our asses.  Like any holiday that commemorates a war victory, we celebrate the ones that gave their lives for generations to live their lives however.

Just my two cents.

Be good too each other.
