    HISTORY

    Most people don’t know that back in 1912, Hellmann’s mayonnaise was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York.

    This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico. But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York. The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost.

    The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning, which they still observe to this day.

    The National Day of mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known, of course, as – Sinko De Mayho.

    Yes…and don’t forget what you called the 4 Mexicans that were on the Titanic overseeing the shipment…Quatro Sinko

    Cinco de Mayo is relevant to all Latinos like the storming of the Bastille is relevant to all Europeans. It isn’t. It is barely relevant in Mexico where it largely ignored. The celebration of a Bunker Hill-like battle is mostly celebrated in the U.S. where it is an excuse to party and drink tequila (not that this is bad). The 5th of May is not Mexican Independence day as is often repeated, but an uprising against Napoleon’s army in a small village. He came back to crush them, but the seeds were sown and the Mexicans eventually kicked the French out. So Happy Cinco de Mayo to everyone.

    Toby,

    ………..”The celebration of a Bunker Hill-like battle is mostly celebrated in the U.S. where it is an excuse to party and drink tequila (not that this is bad).”………….

    EXACTLY CORRECT!
