If Mexicans Celebrated the 4th Like Americans Celebrate Cinco De Mayo

Some Americans look at any holiday as an excuse to party, including other countries’ holidays, like Cinco de Mayo, St. Patricks Day, and Chinese New Year. Even Canada Day is starting to get the treatment. Let’s turn the tables and see how our Independence Day could be used for an excuse to get drunk and party and pretend to be American.

Yeah, sure, plenty of Americans will drink to excess on the Fourth of July, but it won’t be because of cultural appropriation with no understanding. That will be mainly because it falls on a Saturday. -via Buzzfeed

Right on. And Cinco de Mayo is NOT Mexican Independence Day--September 16th is. Cinco de Mayo celebrates the victory of the Mexican Army over the French, who out-numbered them, and were much better equipped.
