We just passed two very important dates on the calendar.
The first, of course, was yesterday.
May the Fifth -- Cinco de Mayo.
Cinco de Mayo (the "Fifth of May") is celebrated nationwide in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla. The date is observed in the U.S. as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, and to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War.
In the state of Puebla, the date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguin.
(I got this information from Wikipedia, so hopefully it's correct.)
The other important date, of course, was the previous day, also known as "Star Wars Day".
I know some of you are thinking, "Star Wars Day???" You heard me correctly.
May the Fourth......be with you.
