The Mexican culture is definitely present here in South Florida and across the country. We have to thank our neighbors to the south for all they have given to us, especially the food! With that being said, it’s time to celebrate one of the best holidays, Cinco de Mayo.
Not to get confused with Mexico’s Independence Day which is September 16. Cinco de Mayo is a fun holiday to get together with friends and family and celebrate the Mexican culture. Whether is going out with friends and drinking some margaritas or making tacos for the entire holiday. Let us suggest some ways you could celebrate the holiday in a fun and safe manner.
“Everyone loves a bit of competition, so split your colleagues into teams and create a contest for the best Mexican-themed desk or pod decoration. This works even if you’re working from home.”
Food, Food, and more Food!
Tacos are easy to make and everyone loves guacamole. Your colleagues would love some virgin margaritas.
It’s fun to learn about different cultures. How about singing to the most popular Mexican “rancheras” with your closest friends. “Ranchera or canción ranchera is a genre of the traditional music of Mexico. It dates to before the years of the Mexican Revolution. It later became closely associated with the Mariachi bands that evolved in Jalisco.”
Support Mexican Businesses
“While there are plenty of chain restaurants that offer Cinco de Mayo deals, Sandoval suggests supporting locally instead: Skip the Taco Bell drive-thru and order carry-out from a local Mexican-owned business in your area. “Whether it’s your local Mexican Restaurant, or a local Mexican pottery store, supporting small business owners helps not just your local economy but it helps to support the Mexicans who’s culture you enjoy celebrating,” she says.”
