Gabriela Frias Explains Why Mexicans Don't Celebrate 'Cinco De Drinko'

Posted By on Mon, May 5, 2014 at 2:00 PM


Ah yes, Cinco De Mayo. Also known as "Cinco-De-Drinko" because Americans needed another reason to drink on a Monday. Apparently, Mexico doesn't really care for the fifth of May. I guess Mexicans don't feel the need to celebrate an American holiday that has tricked the masses to drink margaritas in honor of Mexico's independence four months early.

Gabriela Frias, CNN en Español anchor and journalist, has eloquently explained the importance of the Cinco De Mayo in Mexican history, and how to conduct yourself if you do find yourself in the motherland on that particular uneventful day.
