Cinco de What ?

It's all over the news today to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Supposedly this big, important Mexican holiday, where everyone takes to the streets and drinks cervezas y margaritas, right ?

Hah ! Not. Danny's family has never celebrated this so-called holiday. He's never attended a march or done anything special. And the only time he has ever attended a Cinco de Mayo party was at the homes of his very good, very white, friends.

Cinco de Mayo ? More like Cinco de Stay Home. And that's exactly what we did.

From what I hear it's definitely more of an American holiday to celebrate Mexican culture, like a Mexican St. Patrick's Day. Or at least that's what Wikipedia says. :) I'll take Guinness over crappy corn beer anyday!
