Cinco De Mayo: A Credit Default Party?

Cinco De Mayo garners it’s roots from a credit crisis occuring in Mexico the year of 1861. President Benito Juarez stops credit payments to the English, Spanish, and French. Ensuing conflict between the nations arose, and while the Spanish and English’s attempts were quickly thwarted, the French however had differnt plans. Mexico’s rag-tag army of 4000 proved to be too much for a the 8000 man amry of French Dragoon’s and renegade Mexican milita.

So why not gather a bit of extra holiday cheer this year? Who can’t forget about our nations own economic woes in a fog of tequilla dancing the Cha-cha?
