Something Corona came up with in the seventies so people would drink more Corona.

Cinco De Mayo means 5th of May.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

According to the History Channel's website:
Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—commemorates the Mexican army's 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). A relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations. Cinco de Mayo traditions include parades, mariachi music performances and street festivals in cities and towns across Mexico and the United States.

I didn't know either, thanks for asking, now we both learned something today

Cinco demayo is the spanish tradition of celebrating the "day of the dead" not to be confused with halloween, but basicly they celebrate their lost ancestors or something like that, and traditionally wear masks and dance around and basicly party... Of course here in America it has been exploited and turned into a day to boost beer sales...which is fine with me
Might I point you to a real source.

I like beer. And tequila. But not at the same time.
