I always celebrate Cinco De Mayo because it lands on my birthday.I live in California so of course it's a big holiday here.
I USED TO CELEBRATE IT BUT NOT ANYMORE, JUST NOT HEALTHY FOOD ALTHOUGH DELISHOUS, I AM MEXICAN AMERICAN BORN IN CALIFORNIA, BUT I'M PLASTIC, LOVE THE FOOD BUT DON'T MAKE IT.
Jesus is the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the father but through me.
I never celebrate this day
Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.
Don't make todays choices be tomorrows regret

I went out to dinner at El Torito last night. I grew up in Los Angeles among a huge Hispanic population, and Mexican food is practicallty my second language, so I'll take any excuse to eat it!

I'm not celebrating myself, but I am in one of those "cities with a significant Mexican population" and can still hear festivities going on, police chopper passing occasionally, and more. In fact, I had to abort a plan to head down to drop off things for my DS and DDa tonight because the traffic and road blocks made public transport run really behind.

Nothing to celebrate, but did have some queso & chips and Coronas!
You are worth it!
Means nothing to me.

The holiday of Cinco De Mayo, The 5th Of May, commemorates the victory of the Mexican militia over the French army at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862. It is primarily a regional holiday celebrated in the Mexican state capital city of Puebla and throughout the state of Puebla, with some limited recognition in other parts of Mexico, and especially in U.S. cities with a significant Mexican population. It is not, as many people think, Mexico's Independence Day, which is actually September 16.
Are you celebrating Cinco de Mayo? What are you doing to celebrate this festive day?
Going out to celebrate? Or no plans quiet evening...
