  • Hi,
    As different holidays approach each year, we like to recognize the ones that we can. We can't celebrate each holiday and when we are able to, we might recognize them differently from year to year. In years past we have had a logo change for Cinco De Mayo, but it can be difficult to recognize each holiday every year.

    We appreciate your suggestions about celebrating this Cinco De Mayo, and will keep them in mind as we plan out events for the coming year.

    In the meantime, we would like to encourage you to share your thoughts or traditions on CafeMom and look forward to reading them!

  • They're smart and realize it's a Mexican holiday.... And we're in America.

  • Cinco de Mayo was to be commemorated Wednesday in the state of Puebla and with a small ceremony in Mexico City, with other Mexican cities largely ignoring it, the Houston Chronicle reported.

    In the United States, however, Cinco de Mayo was to be celebrated with festivals and parades in numerous cities including Atlanta, Raleigh, N.C., Midvale, Utah, and Omaha, Neb.

    The holiday crossed over into the United States in the 1950s and 1960s but didn't gain popularity until the 1980s when marketers, especially beer companies, capitalized on the celebratory nature of the day and began to promote it, the Chronicle reported.

  • Well, if Cafemom caters to all nationalities, they should represent it.

    But like PP stated, it could be early yet.

  • They didn't recognize it last year, so I doubt they will this year.

  • Cafemom traditionally recognizes the entire week before mother['s day with mom logos. This holiday just happens to fall in that week.
