Cinco de Mayo

Americans love alcohol in an unnecessary way. Aren't there enough days in a year to celebrate with excessive drinking? Independence Day, Memorial Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve, New Years Day, Easter, your birthday, your friend's birthday, your brother's birthday, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Halloween, Kwanzaa, Earth Day, Hanukkah, Arbor Day, Black History Month, President's Day, Labor Day... and so many more.

Why do we need to celebrate Cinco de Mayo? Is it really necessary to add another day to drink? We already celebrate our own independence. Why celebrate Mexico's and not include other countries? I think we're being biased... We should also celebrate Finland's Independence on December 6th! Qatar on September 3rd! Madagascar on June 26th!

Rosie - I'm simply saying it's a time for reflection and understanding... as is Independence Day & Memorial Day. People tend to forget why we have those days or months honored - and use that time for drinking instead (i.e. college students). Cheers!

Grill - Will do! There's going to be a tropical drink in my hand virtually 24-7 this whole trip!
