Writer's Block: Cinqo de Mayo

Do you celebrate your country's independence? If so, how?


is this question trying to insinuate that today is an independence day of some kind? lol americans

fyi, cinco de mayo is not mexico's independence day (sept 16) but in memory of when the mexican army, outnumbered and outgunned, kicked the asses of the french army which was 2x their size and well-equipped, and invading mexico. ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡VIVA LOS MEXICANOS!!!!!!!!!
i am always highly fond of days where drinking celebrates beating up on the french. i just lol at how many americans really have no idea about any country other than their own, even as they culturally bandwagon all over something, hehe
yeah at least we know the diff between 16 de septiembre and cinco de mayo around here ffs. 16 de septiembre is a bigass party day too.
yeah, southern border states tend to have a better idea of mexicano holidays because of the proximity plus many more latino immigrants settle closer to border. even in norcal tho you hear people saying mexican independence!!11 constantly. its lolzy
cinco de mayo was brought to the attn of america in 1967, when students in california realized there were no mexican holidays.




i learned that today.
which i mention only to show that i have bonus knowledge, not to in any way attempt to actually relate to the conversation.
