Many times life tests us in hard ways, where determination and perseverance are not enough to reach our objectives. Many times these tests put a weight on our shoulders that we weren't ready to carry.
Cinco de Mayo, especially for Mexican Americans living in the United States, is a special date to tell the world of their culture and traditions decorated with an atmosphere of joy and fun. It is also an occasion to remember their origins and share them with future generations. Design #18, Ride Vocho is a vivid appeal to nostalgia and an icon that remains in the DNA of Mexicans who emigrated to the United States 20 or more years ago.
Our thoughts on Cinco de Mayo's history, legacy, and experiences in America today. For years, group chat discussions about where to grab margaritas or what to wear for Cinco de Mayo have inevitably welcomed little facts like, “You know, Cinco de Mayo isn’t really Mexico’s Independence Day,” or “I heard Mexicans don’t even celebrate Sinko de Mayo!” And the increasingly common, “No, mom, you didn’t invent ‘Drinko de Mayo.’” We all know what Cinco de Mayo isn’t, andI’ll be honest, defining Cinco de Mayo is elusive. To put it simply, it is a day that means a lot of things to a lot of people.For that reason,we would like to show our respect and kick off Cinco de Mayo a little early this year by talking about its history and what it all means for us today.
