Did you celebrate Cinco de Mayo appropriately?

    If you ate tacos, or did a tequila shot, you probably didn't:

    Though, not everyone agrees:

  2. Funny that Cinco de Mayo is more of an American holiday. I don't remember any Mexican-American families I grew up with who celebrated it.

    Agreed, I have spent quite a bit of time in Mexico on business and for fun and Cinco de Mayo is a non event there.

    My wife grew up in Mexico City, she says it's roughly the equivalent of President's Day here. They got the day off from school, but other than that, no big deal.

    Similar to St. Patrick's Day in Ireland.

    In fact, any rowdy celebrations of the holiday in Ireland can be attributed to the American tradition crossing over to the Emerald Isle, not the other way around.

    I do hope some student organization warned their fellow students not to celebrate St. Paddy's Day by wearing green and drinking beer.

    Meanwhile as a German-American I have no problem with non-Germans celebrating Oktoberfest by getting drunk since that is rather the point.

    As a Franco born in America I just say: "Meh."

    I'd say this was a Corona creation; I doubt this had a terribly big significance in Mexican culture
