I live in Mexico. It is not a Mexican holiday. In Mexico is not really even acknowledged; just another day of the year. It marks an important military victory, and I don't think you're getting the whole story, but it is not important in Mexican culture.

The whole US celebration is it was invented by beer manufacturers on the US to induce the sheep to spend more money, much as St. Patrick's day has been hijacked and bastardized.

Read this for more information.

Cinco de Mayo is not about war. It's just an excuse to boost sales and get drunk.


Just like those other dopey drunk-fests like St. Patrick's Day. It's an excuse for all the slobs to vomit on the sidewalks.


Listen Augie, we all have our flaws.

While I constantly fight through life to think for myself and fight off paranoia of overlords trying to subdue the masses.... Tell me there is a holiday with tacos, beers, and tequila, and I'll wear a goofy hat too.

I'm about to culturally appropriate the sh#t out of today.

I've made carnitas, am about to make a la diabla steak, and a host of sides.

Cinco De Mayo is important to the U.S. because it's another excuse to get drunk.

Like most other holidays.

Edit: Just saw Augustus already covered it.

Awesome, me and my cudgel are on our way over to vomit green beer on your chow. I'll see myself in.

That's cool man.

But if you throw up you better drink another beer.

Slobs are OK, but I hate quilters. Quilters never win, therefor by default they are losers.

It doesn't stop the occasional nitwit from thinking it was a Mexican invention when it was actually invented here due to the marketing efforts of the mass produced swill breweries like Anheuser Busch, Coors and Miller in the 1980's.

Drink up losers, AB-InBev/SABMiller need more of your money.

While this holiday may have been bastardized to sell to American gluttony....

Americans are doing another favorite thing with it by making it some psuedo political issue and virtue signaling.

😂

Truth be told, I was gonna drink on this Saturday no matter the number combination associated with it.

Just make sure it's a super awesome beer like Corona or Tecate.

Not to mention it is a Mexican holiday and for some reason we have to hear about in the U.S. as well. I seriously doubt they celebrate the 4th of July in Mexico.


Actually, they barely celebrate it in Mexico. It's sort of a regional thing more than a country-wide celebration.

I look at Cinco de Mayo in the US as more of a Americanized thing. It's like St. Patrick's Day is here -- a reason to go eat what we think of as Irish food, have parades, and drink green beer. Only this time, we eat Tex Mex, drink margaritas, etc. Both holidays are really what the SJWs decry as cultural appropriation, but I'll bet they're out there today getting drunk and eating tacos with everyone else.

I'm already drinking a Corona.

I typically don't drink this early, but I needed to open one to cook with it.

I'm not gonna waste the rest in fear of green new deal brownshirts locking me up.

So I guess you've answered the age old question of 'what does Mexican pee taste like?'.

I'm playing a multi layered move to keep people from knowing the truth and taking taco day away from me.

The masses cannot know, they do not want to know.

And I want my tacos.

Stand aside sir.

It has a hint of lime to it if you add lime.

I prefer my pee to have lime.

We're making fajita tacos for supper tonight. Using 3lbs of marinated skirt and serving it up with homemade pico de gallo and guac, street style, not hard shell.

And Cinco de Mayo had no bearing in the choice, but it is appropriate.

Happy cultural appropriation day!

To convince myself I do not ever buy into mainstream holidays I tell myself I am merely hijacking others culture for my own satisfaction. I do that with American superiority.

It feels good. So do the drunken tacos.

Corona is an excellent budget beer.
It’s not so expensive that you are forced to pretend to like it. 😂
Way better than the other common brands.

I also appreciated that there is a lot of fresh salsa, guacamole, pastries, etc available at my local grocer this week. More than usual.

Meh it's an excuse to eat tacos. The u.s. celebrates Columbus day which is worse.
