Juan Tornoe’s 2 Centavos on Cinco de Mayo

8 05 2009

My colleague Juan Tornoe had an opportunity to share his 2 centavos on Cinco de Mayo on Nevada’s KNPR News.  Cinco has been glorified in America but rarely celebrated in Mexico (except for Puebla, MX). It seems like it’s beecome another hallmark holiday just focused on marketing Cinco to make more mula but at the same time, it’s also a great opportunity to celebrate Mexican history & hertiage & a time to educate people on our culture.  I love Juan’s quote…” Cinco de Mayo is a big opportunity to put a big sombrero on, go after a piñata & drink some Coronas.”  Check out his interview with Nevada News Public Radio…

What do you think? Is it just another way to make the American dollar or is it another opportunity to celebrate our Mexican heritage?
