10 Totally Cute DIY Pinatas For Cinco De Mayo

Today is Cinco De Mayo, which according to every Mexican person I know, is not the day of Mexican Independence despite what everyone else has told us. Mexican Independence day is actually September 16, according to Wikipedia Cinco De May, “originated with Mexican-American communities in the American West as a way to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War . . . In the state of Puebla, the date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army‘s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín.” The more you know.
In America, much like any day about any kind of patriotism or pride, it’s an excuse to get very drunk and eat very poorly. Pinatas are fun because you get to hit them, they look cute, and they’re filled with whatever you want. On Cinco De Mayo they should be filled with mini Tequila bottles and candy but, you know, it’s up to you.
On another note please avoid taking photos of yourself in clichéd stereotypical Mexican tropes like sombreros, mustaches, ponchos or, worst of all, landscaping and gardening attire. You don’t need to end up on the nightly news looking like a tool.
