Cinco de Mayo

By: Ross

What is it?

Cinco de Mayo celebrates the victory of a battle between the Mexicans and French, where the Mexicans came out victorious despite being out numbered 2:1.

Why is it celebrated?

Cinco de Mayo represents unexpected victory, a deus ex machina if you will.

Why though?

It's an excuse for a holiday, like presidents day, really just there so you can have fun.

Would I like to celebrate it?

Sure, free holiday, you have less work and get to have fun, though i think the meaning behind it i pretty dumb.
