10 Misconceptions About Cinco De Mayo-- Part 1

From the May 5, 2018, ListVerse  "10 Huge Misconceptions About Cinco De Mayo" by Mark Oliver.

I am just listing the ten,  for more details, go to the site.

10.  It isn't a Mexican holiday.

9.  It isn't even celebrated in Mexico except for scattered parties.  Nothing like here in the U.S.

8.  It isn't mexico's Independence Day.

7.  Mexico didn't actually win the war.

6.  The heroes of the Battle of Puebla weren't good people, particularly Porforio Diaz.


AIN'T IT THE TRUTH:  At my age "Gettin' lucky" means walking into a room and remembering what I came in there for.
