Happy Cinco de Mayo!
I feel like I should offer you a bit of history before the tequila starts flowing. I mean, if you’re going to be celebrating, at least know what happened.
[side note: yes, I know that I’m interrupting a birthday trip but needs must, as I would feel neglectful if I didn’t mention it. Okay, okay and I found a hilarious shirt I wanted to share with you (two actually–the other I posted on ShezzaSpeak).]
Cinco de Mayo is NOT Mexican Independence Day (that’s September 16th). May 5th aka Cinco de Mayo aka El Día de la Batalla de Puebla was an important victory by the Mexicans against French troops, who outnumbered the Mexicans 2:1. It is said to be the start of the Mexican resistance to French rule in Mexico.
There’s more stuff, but I know that at this point, you’re trying to decide if you want to start with cerveza, progress to margaritas and end with tequila or just start with the inevitable?
History lesson over: go drink some tequila!
