While most folks who lived in the United States are not familiar with this holiday, it is big in Mexico. All this came about just before the 1900s and was then a big event.

In the 1800s, there were no factories that produced mayonnaise in the United States or in Mexico. It was all manufactured in England or France. In addition, the product was under a quota system, so there would only be a set amount delivered by steamship.

The ship with the cargo of mayonnaise would be carrying paying passengers and in the hold would be cases of mayonnaise, which was somewhat limited due to the amount of space allowed. And of course, there would be other items as well.

On this particular trip, the ship had docked in New York, allowing the passengers and all the merchandise, including the allotted amount of mayonnaise to be unloaded. After that was completed, the ship set sail for Mexico to deliver the rest of its cargo.

Since this was in the time of the year when hurricanes were more likely, the ship unfortunately ran directly into one and was sunk. It was a tragedy, loss of lives and almost as important the loss of the year’s supply of mayonnaise! Now both countries, The United States and Mexico resolved to begin manufacturing of mayonnaise so they would not have to rely of imported shipments from Europe.

But the people of Mexico went even further. They decided to begin a holiday to commemorate this by having a national celebration, so this is now known as Cinco de Mayo in the country of Mexico. Just Sayin…RJS

I don't think that's how it started RJS but I totally love Tex-Mex from small Mom and pop Mexican food shops all over the place.. Taco bell ain't worth a hoot.. casa manana, all over San Antonio. I have many Mexican American friends growing up in the Lonestar state and have had supper with many homemade Mexican friends mother's tables. Funny story RJS

I was asked what Cinco de Mayo was about as I was the same culture. I informed them that just because I speak Spanish I am not of that culture. I also told them that if they would read about history they would know what it was about. It was a battle that Mexico won against the French. It was not celebrated here in t.he states until a beer advertisement to increase their beer sells.
I have heard the joke Mr Samples posted and I find it funny. I was disappointed when the Taco Bell chihuahua was taken off as I found it funny also.
