Today (5/4/21) is Cinco de Mayo!
It’s really the first party holiday, since huge numbers of people got the vaccine.
So I’m thinking LOTS of people are going to want to live it up today, even if they have NO idea WHY they’re living it up.
A survey just asked people what Cinco de Mayo is actually about.
Only 10% of people knew the correct answer: Celebrating a major Mexican battle win. The victory was over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5th, 1862.
The survey also found almost three-quarters of Americans said they planned to do something to celebrate.
