Cinco de Mayo plus Sharks equals busy weekend in San Jose

Saturday is Cinco de Mayo and Sunday the Sharks play at The SAP Center in game 6 of round 2 of the playoffs.

The provincial government is acknowledging one of Mexico's national holidays.

Cinco De Mayo, the middle sibling of America's St. Patrick's Day through Independence Day party bender, is often misunderstood. The victory provided a significant morale boost to the Mexican people and came to serve as a symbol of the country's spirit and perseverance. Rather, it's a day to recognize the Mexican Army's impressive defeat of numerically and technologically superior French forces in 1862 near the southern territory of Puebla.

Downing Street released a statement around 10pm on Sunday confirming that Theresa May had accepted Rudd's resignation . It's also notoriously known as something of a political minefield - May's six-year survival there being an exception.

Jayme Sanders, owner of Mint Studio located at 5965 Village Way in Pacific Highlands Ranch, suggests upgrading your Cinco de Mayo fiesta with easy DIY décor. The battle wasn't a decisive turning point, and the French ended up taking Mexico City a year later and ruling for about three more years. But few among them may know the true story behind the popular holiday, some might even believe it's Mexico's independence day, an embarrassingly common misconception.

Some of the largest celebrations in the US are held in Los Angeles and in towns throughout the west where there are large Mexican-American populations.

"Unfortunately, the celebrations have become less about the appreciation of Mexican heritage, and instead has become more about drinking and partying especially by non-Mexican individuals", the message continued. And if you're a Kentuckian who took to the Internet to find out when the Mexican commemorative holiday is, you're reportedly among the majority.
