Most People Don't Know Why They Celebrated Cinco De Mayo


Plenty of people probably downed one or two, or several, margaritas yesterday celebrating Cinco De Mayo, but the truth is most people probably didn’t know what exactly they were celebrating.

A recent poll finds that only 22% of Americans actually know the holiday honors the Mexican army’s victory over the French empire. Of course that didn’t stop folks from celebrating, with half of those polled saying they usually celebrate the holiday, and one in eight respondents hosting a party this year.

Now, while most people love a good party, not everyone is the perfect party guest, with the poll revealing some of the biggest no-nos you could do at a bash. One of the biggest party fouls is to show up sick (49%), while being on your phone all night is also frowned upon (45%).
