Before I let you look at pictures of beautiful Mexican women, I wanted to go ahead school ya'll on exactly why Cinco De Mayo is observed. I promise it won't take long—buy you should really know the reasoning behind having an excuse to ingest copious amounts of tequila and guacamole. For those of you who know already, feel free to skip paragraph dos.
I won't get too academic, so as per the beloved website every half-assed college student used to cite in their papers, Wikipedia—"Cinco de Mayo is a celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza."
See? That wasn't so bad! Of course, this day of commemoration has been Americanized by the mainstream media, but hey! What hasn't? Similarly to St. Patrick's Day, I see more frat boys in khaki shorts and boat shoes celebrating more than anyone else.
