So do you think we should still celebrate Cinco De Mayo, even though it's not an American Holiday?

I don't really care. I mean...I love Cinco De Mayo! The food is awsome! But with pepole being soooo touchy about this being "America" and everyone should speak English. Does that mean those who are part-whatever shouldn't celebrate Chinese New Year or Cinco de Mayo too?

  • Who the hell cares? Let people celebrate what they want and if you don't want to....DON'T! It's really that simple.

    Anon--I completely understand what you're saying. I will never understand why people refuse to learn a second or third, even fourth language. While learning Spanish, I have learned a lot about my own native language. I also know some French, Italian....would love to know Portuguese and I am starting to study Mandarin Chinese. People just use certain things as an excuse to not use their brain. Sure, people who move here should learn English to make their lives easier, but what do we lose by learning another language? Nothing...we only gain knowledge. Let the narrow minded be.....our children will succeed fruther.

  • I've never celabrated Cinco de Mayo, but it sounds like fun. I don't see anything wrong with people celebrating something that has to do with their heritage.

  • I thought that in Mexico, it's a national holiday celebrating the defeat of the French at Puebla in 1862.

  • You really should seek help, OP.

    Why should we not celebrate it?
    No different than celebrating Saint Patty day.
