4 Ways to Celebrate Cinco De Mayo
In America we like to celebrate with alcohol, but you don't have to throw back shots of tequila to participate in the festivities. Choose any of these five ways to make the most of the holiday.
What's a celebration without decorations? Treat Cinco de Mayo the same way you get into any holiday spirit: hang a traditional Mexican piñata (or make your own), rock a red lip and subtle green eyeshadow or don a sombrero. Ole!
In Latino cultures, family always comes together at the dinner table. Take this opportunity to experiment with spicy hot sauces and new seasonings. Whip up traditional Mexican meals like tamales, tacos and chiles rellenos.
Although they were outnumbered and under-prepared, the Mexican army defeated the French on May 5th 1852. Celebrate the spirit of the holiday by doing something challenging. Assemble that home entertainment system (the one that's been in the box for months) by yourself, or go on a blind date.
Break out your sexy skirt and heels and get on the dance floor. You don't have to learn traditional Mexican dances to move your hips on Cinco de Mayo.
