Let's tell the whole story. France, Germany and England lent money to Mexico. When they didn't repay the loan, the French sent soldiers to collect the money owed, and Mexico won. The loans were never repaid.

The majority of people in Mexico do not celebrate it. Many see it as part of history, but nothing to celebrate.

Why all the fuss about Cinco de Mayo here in utah? There are probably just as many people with danish decent living here in this state, and we dont celebrate anything about denmark. We ought to be Americans and celebrate american traditions and holidays, not a nation divided.

Agree with the others. Why do we celebrate this?

Let's all be Americans and ACT like it.

There's no money in being American.
You've got to hyphenate to be part of a protected class. That's where the grants are.
You would never win in court if you claimed discrimination because you are an American.
Maybe someday.

What a sad comment thread, try embracing the cultural diversity of your state (including your Danish Heritage) rather than try to stuff everyone into a plan vanilla box. Your city and state will be much richer from the experience.

It's sad that the media does not give other culture and ethnic groups the same attention.
