Many people around the world celebrate Cinco de Mayo with food, drinks, and yes, even weed. As a matter of fact, individuals often take advantage of this day to let their hair loose and to revel in the wonderful culture being celebrated.
What Exactly is Cinco de Mayo?
Cinco de Mayo, Spanish for the “Fifth of May” is typically celebrated both in Mexico and in various parts of the United States. Most individuals mistakenly celebrate this day as Mexico’s Independence Day, but this event normally commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over Napoleon III’s forces. Over time, this momentous day has been highlighting Mexican pride, culture, and tradition by people coming from all parts of the world.
Some of the traditional festivities and fanfare in these celebrations include a re-enactment of the Battle of Pueblo, dancing, music, singing, drinking, and of course, binging on mouth-watering Mexican food.
