feliz cinco

Dudes, what is it about Cinco de Mayo?!  It’s just so super festive and fun you can’t help but want to celebrate the holiday.  Maybe it’s the excuse to hang out with friends drinking margaritas and eating tons of chips and guacamole, which is never a bad thing.  But whatever it is, I hope you have a happy one!  I took this photo last year on the second part of our honeymoon, which was a road trip down the California coast.  We stopped at Olvera Street for some Mexican food and to wander around a bit.

So do you have Cinco plans?  I’d love to know if and how you celebrate!  xoxo

  1. Well, I’m Mexican, and nope, no plans. To me it is not really a holiday, it never has been. Our Independence is on September 15th at midnight. That’s when we really celebrate!! and we have music and fireworks, there’s dancing, our flag is waved, and a bell is rung -just like the one that called the people to fight that midnight over 200 years ago- and we remember our heroes, and celebrate our food and our traditions and our culture.

    5 de Mayo was just a battle. Important, yes, but not Independence-level. So in Mexico it is not as big of a deal as it seems to be in the US. I guess it is one of those Tex-Mex kind of things.

    Part of me feels a tiny bit bugged that everyone thinks it’s our Independence, when the big day is on September (and nobody really celebrates that one, the real deal). But part of me thinks that it’s kind of sweet that people here care about celebrating Mexican Independence… even if it is the wrong date… and at times it seems like just an excuse to party… I have mixed feelings as you can see hehehehe.

    In any case, have a lovely weekend!!

  2. I believe this is in celebration of a rather small band of army plus civilians beating the French in the battle of Puebla. More a victory of spirit. Not sure I have all of that correct. But yes, in the U.S. this is widely celebrated and you barely hear anything about September 15.

  3. I am mexican and we never ever celebrate a “cinco de mayo” (Batalla de Puebla)….
    I guess is a holyday invented by third generation “mexicans” living un the USA, by the way, they are no considered as mexicans anymore!! cheers girl, I like your blog!
