Happy Cinco de Mayo!

According to Wikipedia, Cinco de Mayo is more heavily celebrated in American than it is in Mexico. A common misconception is that Cinco de Mayo is Mexico's Independence Day.

Does anyone do anything special for the 5th of May yearly? I actually have friends who take off the day after Cinco de Mayo in anticipation for a hangover! While I'm happy to use any excuse to go out to drink beers, I seldom if ever have done anything to "celebrate" this informal holiday.

Yo también creo Cinco de Mayo es una fiesta clave de baja y nunca realmente lo celebró mucho, sin embargo, cualquier excusa para Tecate es una goog para mí!

You're right! Low key as it may be it's still a good excuse to drink Tecate (unless it's out of a can).
