Celebrate Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo


There are many different ideas and opinions out there about the Cinco de Mayo holiday. Many Americans think it’s the Mexican version of the Fourth of July (perhaps because it follows the same naming convention), although it is not. Many others use it as an excuse to eat tacos and drink margaritas to excess.

No matter what, it’s a great reason to celebrate and learn more about the vibrant history and culture of Mexico. (And if you end up taste-testing some tequila in the process, where’s the harm?)

I’ve gathered some great resources, all available for viewing online or downloading, to jump-start your exploration of our neighbor to the south. Enjoy the people, history, language, art, and cuisine of Mexico, and maybe next year you can plan a more authentic Cinco de Mayo celebration.
