Cinco de Mayo

I've never celebrated Cinco de Mayo despite growing up and continuing to live in the Southwest. What does a Scots/French/German American who speaks a not quite comprehensible version of Spanish do to celebrate a Mexican holiday? Well ... in typical bookish fashion, I've decided to begin reading a book that has been on my reading list for years -- Bless Me, Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya. Anaya is an award winning and prolific Chicano author who writes fiction, non-fiction, and children's books.

Maybe I'll have a Coronita while I read. Sounds like a party to me!

Do you celebrate Cinco de Mayo?

  1. I don't celebrate Cinco de Mayo - there's not a huge Hispanic community here in PEI, but I love a Coronita!
