Si, Cinco de Mayo.
The President called it 'Cinco de Cuatro' in front of the Mexican Ambassador yesterday. I figured it was the catchy new name for the holiday

So hoist a cold Micheleorita and sing 'Fernando" with me

Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in NewYork.

This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico. But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York. The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost.

The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning, which they still observe to this day.

The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known, of course, as Sinko De Mayo.

WHAT??? You expected something EDUCATIONAL from me?

Good one!

In reality, el cinco de mayo is not even celebrated in Mexico, as it is only the date that the battle of Puebla was won. What we in the US mistakenly celebrate as Mexican independence day from France should be 16 September - highly celebrated in Mexico.

To hell with the wait - just how many Americans could you get to even try and say "Dieciocho de Septiembre" let alone get all excited about it!
