On May 5th, or Cinco de Mayo, Lydi and I held a program to explain the significance of Cinco de Mayo. There are many misconceptions about the holiday in the United States, and we wanted to clear some of them up. We made some virgin margaritas to celebrate this day of Mexican heritage pride. Lydi also made some awesome door decs to promote the event that are traditional Mexican dancing dresses. It was wonderful to be able to teach people more about a holiday that is seen as just an excuse to drink for a good portion of the American population. I hope that people think more about what it symbolizes before they try to make it a holiday stereotyping a group of people.
