Today is 5 de Mayo! Time to learn a bit before we party! Saying that, in 1862 during the first years of the cicil war (Freeing the slaves wasn’t on the table yet) The Mexican Army in the State of Puebla had an unexpected victory over invading French forces. May 5th is not Mexican Independence day, That is on September 16. Cinco de Mayo celebrates an unlikely victory against overwhelming odds! WOOT!!!!!
Time to get my BBQ going, my beer cold, and my tequila with a worm in the bottom of the bottle! Its Cinco De Mayo baby and i am ready to celebrate and confuse the neighbors once more. Hey, i am a Black woman in America! I could have some Latin in me!
