Nosh Box: On a Roll in May

We begin May’s celebrations with May Day, a holiday with an international following, but not much domestically. So don’t be looking for a May Day song, dance, libation, food—or a day off work. Moving on, usually in the same week, up pops Cinco de Mayo festivities. In Mexico this holiday is primarily historical, celebrating the military victory over the powerful army of the French. In the United States, we use the date to celebrate all of Mexican culture. According to National Public Radio’s Dan Pashman, “Cinco de Mayo, which has followed a similar path as St. Patrick's Day: Started by activists to celebrate Mexican culture; embraced by people just looking for a good time.”
