Just thought I would share with everyone the history of Cinco de Mayo, as it was explained to me at work today.
Person 1: Cinco de Mayo! Cinco de Mayo! Why does everyone keep wishing me a happy Cinco de Mayo! I don’t get it!
Me: The fifth of May is a holiday in Mexico.
Person 2: Yeah! It celebrates the end of the war between the Spanish and the French.
Person 1: Oh! The Spanish-American War!
So, as I understand it, Cinco de Mayo celebrates the end of the Spanish-American War. Which was fought between Spain and France. In Mexico.
Also, I’ve been working on a major shop restock (here’s some draft listings waiting to become active)
New business cards (something that mentions what I make, aha)
and some pretty exciting changes for me! More on that as it unfolds :)
