    explanation of cinco de mayo from another forum

    Most people don't know that back in 1912. Hellmann's Mayonnaise was
    manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of
    the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be
    the next port of call for the great ship af ter its stop in New York. This
    would have been the largest single shipment delivered to Mexico.

    But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York. The ship hit
    an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost.

    The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerly
    awaiting its delivery; were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so
    great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning, which they still
    observe to this day.

    The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known, of
    course, as "Sinko de Mayo"

    Hope this isn't a repost...
