Until recently I thought Cinco de Mayo was the celebration of Mexican Independence day from the Spanish rule. Actually it is a minor holiday to commemoration driving French out of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War in 1862.
In the United States Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations. When I arrived at San Jose, CA years ago the most popular name was Rodriguez and 50% residents spoke Spanish. Over the years Nguyen became the most popular name. I saw at least 18 pages of Nguyen and there were 3 pages of them with identical first, sometimes middle and last name in the telephone book.
These days only 23.5% local residents practice Spanish at home and I sometimes can surpass younger Latino in conversational Spanish.
On short notice and shortage of eligible men performers the Mucho Hermanos team was volunteered to do a dance and song at the local senior lunch. Women do not feel comfortable putting on mustache and this is their adios shot.
Nothing is completed without having a drink at the end of the day to celebrate a north American fiesta. Viva Cinco de Mayo!
