Cinco De Mayo
The History Behind the Custom
For the past couple years Cabarrus County 4-H has held their meetings on Cinco de Mayo where we hold our business meeting then proceed to explore different aspects of the celebration. For example we have cooked and served sopapillas and a few other traditional Mexican dishes, learned the basics steps to the salsa, and created colorful crafts. Although I am not of Mexican descent I enjoy celebrating some of the aspects of this Mexican holiday every year.
