Celebrate Cinco de Mayo!

Olé!

No matter what the reason, it's always fun to have a celebration. And this weekend, we are going to be celebrating Cinco de Mayo. What is Cinco de Mayo, you ask? It's translated as the 5th Of May, and it commemorates the victory of the Mexican militia over the French army at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862. So how should we celebrate? Well, here is our crash course in fiesta planning:

Eat up! Gather with friends and have dinner featuring Mexican food. Be sure to include traditional refreshing Mexican drinks such as limonada (lemon and water) or horchata (rice, milk, vanilla and cinnamon) or a traditional Mexican drink of a margarita (with or without tequila). And don't forget to try our recipes for fajitas, guacamole and bean dip!

Educate yourself. Have a movie night in and rent a documentary on Mexican history or culture. Or check out the famous art of Mexican artists such as Frida Kahlo or Diego Rivera.

Color your world. Don't forget to incorporate the colors of the Mexican flag (red, white, and green) in costumes and party decorations, balloons, streamers, and flowers.

Share the story. Have your kids create fun, colorful crafts, such as a pinata. Or red, white and green sprinkles on cookies.

Learn the language. Take a couple of minutes to learn some spanish words. Hola is hello. Adiós is goodbye. Bueno is good. Bienvenido is welcome. For more words, you can translate here.

Hear the sounds. Enjoy the sounds of a mariachi band.

Enjoy the Cinco de Mayo celebrations and let us know what you do to celebrate! Adios!
