North of the Mexican/American border, Cinco de Mayo has become a beloved drinking holiday rivaling St. Patrick’s Day and New Year’s Eve. (If you come from a dysfunctional family, Thanksgiving is the #1 drinking holiday.)
South of the Mexican/American border, Cinco de Mayo commemorates the 1862 victory by the Mexican Army at the Battle of Puebla.
North of the Mexican/American border, many people are unaware of the holiday’s significance to the folks south of the Mexican/American border. Most revelers don’t care about historical details, they just want an excuse to drink Margaritas before happy hour.
