Well, until Chris explained it to me I didn't have a clue what it was. Since then, I've heard about it on the news too. Susan, it's the day Mexico celebrates the defeat of Napoleon I think.

It's not something we celebrate here. Sounds like a good night though!

I am! I am!!!!

I have a date, it's a FIRST DATE of all things. And I'm nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rockers, too.

We are going somewhere in a popular area of Cincinnati where youngin's party, there's all kinds of Cinco de Mayo celebrations going on around here. So we're going to hunt down some bands, some tequila, some grub & party til the bars close.

Rigel, I've heard that Cinco de Mayo, or the defeat of the French occupation forces, isn't that big of a celebration in Mexico? Is that right? I heard that actually the September 16th celebration of the defeat of Spanish occupation forces is bigger?

Me? I'm working and staying at home. Around here, if you don't have a Mexican flag on your car it's just better not to even leave your house. Sad how some bad elements have really soured this day/weekend for a whole lot of the Denver-Metro area.

On May 5, 1862 the Mexicans beat the French army at the Battle of Puebla. Their victory was short-lived, though - the French came back, won and installed Maximilian as Emperor of Mexico.

In Mexico, it is a more subdued holiday. In the Southwestern US, its an excuse to party and for Corona to sell lots of beer. Think of it as a Mexican St. Patrick's Day.

Thanks Rigel! Cindy is right...in these parts it is more of a Mexican Pride day than anything. It's sad, actually, because a lot of those who celebrate have no idea what Cinco de Mayo is, and have no idea about 16 de Septiembre.

Rigel, I posted about the NIN concert here: http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/sho...t=50330&page=2 Thanks for asking!!
