Holidays and Celebrations : Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Although my current residence is Austin, Texas and this city has many citizens of Mexican descent and Cinco de Mayo is celebrated, there isn't much for me to tell because nobody ever told me much about it. For those who might be interested in this holiday, below are a few links of interest.

This holiday is primarily observed by Mexican-Americans all over the United States to honor their heritage or roots. However, was born and raised in Miami, Florida and never heard of this day until we relocated to Texas.

Two other holidays celebrated in this state that were also unknown to me until we moved here: Texas Independence Day, March 2nd; and Juneteenth – June 19th.


Never knew anything about these special days. T.I.D. is unique to Texans but it's been said that Juneteenth is a worldwide celebration. Worldwide? Really?? Not sure what world I've been living in all this time, nevertheless … can no longer claim ignorance about any of these memorable events. There are important dots on the #timeline of #history of mankind and should not be ignored.  :)

July is a Popular Month for Independence Days

While doing research to write an article about my father's land of birth, came across an interesting … uuhhh … ??? ... “coincidence”? The month of July is a very popular month for independence days.





  • The Bahamas - July 10th
  • United States of America - July 4th
  • Argentina - July 9th
  • France - July 14th
  • Colombia - July 20th
  • Cuba - 26th of July Movement
Didn't do extensive research but there looks like a pattern here.  Must be something about a hot summer month.

- Who would willingly choose to do battle in the dead of winter?

- Spring time is a time for lovers? The birds and the bees, the flowers and the trees. Etc.

- Autumn is out of the question. You can't sneak up on the enemy because the dead leaves on the ground make too much noise when you step on 'em!!
 
- Fighting for your freedom in the month of July?  Makes perfect sense.


Cool thing about The Bahamas is they peacefully negotiated their independence from the British. Now that's a noteworthy historical note!  Wouldn't you agree?
