Gotta say, all the way back to my Tejas days, my experience has been this holidays been co-opted into somtoo closely resembling St Paddy's Day...

...& I wonder why it's taken such prominence rather than

Never heard of this one. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

 

I know what you mean about Cinco de Mayo ("It's a day when we're ALL Mexicans!"), but I love Mexican guitar music. Any excuse to break out baby Raimundo and fudge my way through some!

Can you blame them for hating the French?

Every May 5th I force myself to chug a couple shots of Jose Cuervo. Just being respectful, ya know? :cool:

I lived in Mexico for a year and a half in 1984 or so - in Ciudad Juarez, back before you had to dodge bullets on a daily basis... and went to school in El Paso during the day.

 

I love the Mexican people, but don't really like ranchero music. Sometimes though, if I go eat huevos rancheros or tacos at local Mexican restaurants, I am exposed to it. That's cool - to the regulars, it's a little piece of THEIR country, and they're entitled to it!

 

My wife is Colombian, and she's about as Mexican as I am Chinese, LOL!
