El Festival Más Caliente

Cinco de Mayo – El Festival Más Caliente

Ah yes! Once again it’s Cinco de Mayo, possible the hottest holiday ever created. Sadly, it may also be called el festival más racista jamás creado por Norteamérica, since it’s largely an American invention and is filled with some piss-poor stereotypes and tropes.

Hence, I’s rather use the day to celebrate the beauty of Latinas than to dress inappropriately and swill tequila, especially the cheap, nasty stuff that will be the unfortunate norm.

Happy Cinco de Mayo

No! Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day and it’s barely celebrated in Mexico, except in the state of Puebla, where the holiday is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla. In point of fact, it’s celebrated far more – and far more exuberantly – in America than in Mexico.

Happy Cinco de Mayo

It’s really an “immigrant” holiday that has successfully assimilated into- and added to America’s tapestry of holidays. So go out and celebrate it. Have fun! Take a day and night to enjoy the beauties of Mexico. 😉
