Did you know? In Mexico, Cinco De Mayo is celebrated to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5th 1862. (And no, it’s not Mexico’s Independence Day – that’s celebrated on September 16th.)

Here in the U.S. Cinco de Mayo has taken on a cultural significance of its own. Here, May 5th has become a day to celebrate and honor Mexican-American culture. While it seems impossible to get people to agree on anything these days, there are two things for certain that everyone should be thankful for on Cinco de Mayo: tacos and margaritas. All political views aside – you should always, always be thankful for tacos.

As with most holidays, it’s made that much better by impossibly cute pictures of dogs in holiday-themed outfits. And luckily for us, Cinco de Mayo falls on a Friday this year. So in honor of Cinco de Mayo, let’s all take a moment to realize how truly #blessed we are to have tacos and dogs in our lives, as we drink margs and scroll through pictures of adorable dogs donning tiny sombreros.

Because dogs and tacos make everything better.

Take life with a grain of salt, a slice of lime, and a shot of tequila.
