From Wikipedia:

Cinco de Mayo ("The Fifth of May" in Spanish) is primarily a regional, and not a federal, holiday in Mexico; the date is observed in the United States and other locations around the world as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. It commemorates an initial victory of Mexican forces led by General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín over French forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

However, the Mexican victory at Puebla only delayed the French invasion of Mexico City, and a year later, the French occupied Mexico. The French occupying forces placed Maximilian I, Emperor of Mexico on the throne of Mexico; Maximillian and the French were eventually defeated and expelled in 1867, five years after the Battle of Puebla.

A common misconception in the United States is that Cinco de Mayo is Mexico's Independence Day; Mexico's Independence Day is September 16 (dieciséis de septiembre in Spanish).

I had long suspected that this holiday doesn't exist for any real reason.

Let's get trashed.

if you start drinking right now, and i start drink right now, i think that constitutes drinking together

That would work if I was 21 and could walk to the beer depot. They have a drive-thru! But no car so that doesn't matter.

you have drive thru liquor shacks? whao :awesome:

It's actually I think only for beer and the like. It's like a regular-sized liquor store but the back is cut out with a drive thru and a ton of cases everywhere. It's man's greatest achievement.

Next semester I need to take a pic of the place. It makes me cry with joy.
