Would I Celebrate it

What I learn about this is that apparently Cinco de Mayo is a real Mexican celebration when I was always told that Americans made it so they can get drunk. But now knowing that it is real I will still not celebrate it because none of my family is Mexican and many of my Mexican friends don't celebrate this holiday
