Happy Cinco de Mayo!

As one of the few resident Americans here at stylefruits UK, I would like to point out that today is one of my favourite holidays: Cinco de Mayo. On the fifth of May every year, Americans and Mexicans alike celebrate the victory of the Mexican Army over the French in the Battle of Puebla in 1862, the cause of freedom and democracy in general, and Mexican heritage. Basically, it’s a lot to celebrate, and there is no better way to do that than with a big, big plate of nachos (no skimping on the guac!) and a few margaritas – or virgin margaritas if you’re not of age yet (or if that’s just not your thing). Mexico has given the world so much in terms of culture, cuisine and even fashion. Just take a quick look in your wardrobe and count the number of items that have some element borrowed from or inspired by historic Mexican culture and fashion: the number just might surprise you. So today, enjoy some delicious Mexican cuisine, maybe spend a bit of time brushing up on your Spanish and throw a little party, because celebrating culture and diversity is one of the most fun things ever!
