Today is the fifth of May. ¡Cinco de Mayo!
Though I don’t live in a community where this holiday is observed in any major way, it is, nonetheless, increasingly popular as more of the state’s population comes from or has family ties to Mexico.
One of my great nieces was born on this day, so, even if I barely know any Spanish and hail from a long line of Northern Europeans, I like to think I can celebrate this holiday, too! Cinco de Mayo. A day of celebration.
!Tenga un feliz Cinco de Mayo! [Have a happy Cinco de Mayo!]
