Happy Cinco de Mayo Tomorrow
You can be happy even if you are not Mexican. When I was growing up in my small town Fatty had a cement slab behind his house for celebrations such as this. It had benches on two sides and lights strung above. His house was in walking distance of our house as was everything, because that was our mode of transportation. After dark our family would go to watch the celebration from the sidelines. Watching the Mexican couples march around with their Mexican costumes on and dancing to their music. We liked to spin the wheel to try to win a prize and eat a taco and drink a Big Red soda. Have any of you attended a Cinco de Mayo celebration?
