My husband and I have always celebrated it. When we first started dating, the local Mexican place was our favorite place to go. Cinco de Mayo is really an American holiday. ;) It was brought over by Mexican immigrants a very long time ago, and isn't celebrated nearly as much there as here. It's celebrating a very local, regional battle.
Unfortunately though, the primary focus is alcohol, and my husband is an alcoholic trying to make it to recovery, so heading out to a margarita-soaked celebration would be extremely bad. I'm disappointed that we have to break a 15 year tradition, but his health and sanity is more important.
So this year, we're making fajitas at home. :) Probably healthier (and a whole lot cheaper) anyway!
Writer, mother, wife, and breadwinner. I love to run, but running doesn't love me, so I'm switching to my low-impact bike.
