It's the fifth of May here which means party time for most of the US. What do you guys do to celebrate Mexican culture and history?

They did and they won. They lost on the fifth of may though. That's why we celebrate it. Well actually we clebrte it becauase the alchol companies made it promoted and so we could buy alcohol but it doesn't matter really since we can buy alcohol all the time.

If I had any money I'd go get a burrito at this really good place by my house, but I don't.

I should go to this other place actually called Cinco de Mayo, but it's guaranteed to be packed.

Every year on the fifth of May, me and my destitute family leave our cardboard box to go to the rich family next door and ask for help.

Then they give us their scraps, tell us they hate us and that those scraps should have gone towards a fence to keep us out, and we cry all the way home.

It's Liberation Day here in the Netherlands, so I am off work today and tomorrow. Will be doing some gaming, following some courses so I think I will spend some time on that, and also will take a walk to find out more about my new neighborhood.

Thanks man I appreciate the warm welcome back. It seems like things have been pretty dull here since my last appearance in the pit.

Because without cinco de mayo, the calendar would go from cuarto de mayo straight to sexto de mayo. Chaos and madness would ensue. Rains of fire and brimstone. Cats and dogs living together!

I'll celebrate by going to a showing of CA:Civil War tonight and having a Quesadilla and a Margarita while I'm there.

Just another point in favor of Mayo.

They don't call it "Cinco De Miracle Whip"

A little known fact is that back in 1912, Hellmann’s mayonnaise was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York. This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico but as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York.

The ship hit an iceberg and sank and the cargo was forever lost. The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise and were eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning which they still observe to this day. The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known, of course as Sinko de Mayo.

Thanks for the history lesson flexiblemile. My condolences to the Mexican people for their loss.

Why do we celebrate cinco de Mayo when it represents Mexican independence? Canadians don't celebrate the fourth of July.

I don't know why YOU celebrate it, but since about 75% of the population where I live is Hispanic (Las Cruces, NM) they certainly celebrate it here.

A. It's not Mexican Independence Day, that's in September.
B. Filipinos do.
C. Denmark does, and in style! http://www.bbc.com/travel/story/20120627-worldwide-weird-celebrate-american-independence-in-denmark

Is that day of mourning also when they were so shocked, they all sat on avocados, chillies and limes and discovered guac?

Da fuq Denmark has a queen. That's like inappropriate cultural appropriation.


Denmark is one of the very few nations that has been smart enough to realize that it if wasn't for the US and the super soldier serum, Hydra would have won the war and they would be slaves to Germany!

Or something like that...
