Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Go forth and support the Mexican economy by drinking lots of cheap mexican beer and tequila! I'll do my part!

I've heard this particular day mentioned in a few blogs. We don't have such festivities in the UK.

Shame that.

It's like St. Patrick's Day. You don't actually have to be Mexican, or within 3,000 miles of Mexico in order to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Instead of Guinness and Jameson, you just need to be able to get your hands on some Corona or Dos Equis and some tequila. Instead of remembering how the snakes were driven from Ireland, you reminisce about the French being driven from Mexico.

It's really quite simple, they have celebrations in Canada and Malta, I'm sure you could get one started in the UK.
