¡ Feliz Cinco de Mayo !
Cinco de Mayo, the Mexican holiday, which has been celebrated continuously since 1863, is virtually ignored in Mexico. Cinco de Mayo festivals in the United States are characterized by parades, patriotic speeches and picnics, along with the prominent display of both the Mexican and U.S. flags. However, not everyone celebrates Cinco de Mayo with Mexican dances and food. Some use the holiday as a reason for eating and drinking to excess. Though this can be offensive for some people of Mexican heritage, most believe the excessive eating and drinking is a result of misconceptions about Cinco de Mayo.
