I understand that this holiday was created by the people at Duke's (the official mayonnaise of America) to advertise their oh-so-delicious product and was subsequently appropriated by another group to commemorate something that happened at the Battle of Puebla somewhere in Old Mexico.
I think it is important to acknowledge the sacrifices of the Duke's Mayonnaise family and their contribution to American culture. So slap some Duke's on a saltine cracker today and raise it in honor of A-mer-ca!
However, in the interest of multiculturalism, if you wish to acknowledge the historic victory of the Mexican army over the mighty French at the Battle of Puebla may I humbly suggest that you follow my plan:
A. Italian Nachos
( yeah they are Italian nachos
but they are still nachos, and they are AWESOME
B. Several cold Beers or tequila Shots
C. A movie that celebrates Mexican culture like: The Three Amigos
or Nacho Libre
, or the heart-touching Casa de mi Padre
Que Dios te bendiga and God bless Duke's!
