The Queen's Chair: Happy Cinco de Mayo! (325 hits)

It's May 5th. The day after my daughter's birthday. Most people don't celebrate Cinco de Mayo. They think that day is a Spanish independence one. It's not. It's a Mexican celebration of a war victory.

I plan on celebrating tonight. No dancing. I studied Spanish in school (my daughters are carrying on the tradition) and love the culture. I'm cooking beans and rice with tacos. Having a virgin margarita and my girls are having water. Will put on some Mexican tunes on in the car on the way to practice.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

@Thanxs for recognizing this very important holiday and the significance of General Santa Ana that goes beyond this holiday, his support of the Mexican Underground system that former so-called black americans used to gain freedom. Mexico forbid slavery under his rule which is a historic fact.
This is much more interesting post in contrast to the Bin Laden fanfare and hype.
Thanxs so much!!!!

Thanks Marsha, because we should learn about the Mexican's abe Lincoln also. "I" know how excited I was to learn about this when learning about Cinco de Mayo. (smile)
