LOBOY FOAM COOLERS & ICE CHESTS HELP KEEP CINCO de MAYO CELEBRATIONS HAPPY!
Although it’s not an official ‘HOLIDAY’ kind of holiday, and not celebrated as a National Holiday in Mexico, Cinco de Mayo has wide popularity among merrimakers in the good ole USA as part of the ramp-up to Summer fun. And now that the hectic Spring Break season is drawing to a close, the team here at Magna’s getting ready for annual Cinco de Mayo festivity demand thanks to rising temperatures and rising calls for icy cold refreshments.
Here on the Florida Panhandle (same as other beachfront regions of the country), Cinco de Mayo is just one more reason for sun worshippers and beach goers to get out of the house and have a good time, but did you know that there was actually an impact to our own United States history as well.
With a quite a bit of focused scientific research (okay, it got Google’d), we found out that the U.S.’s collaboration to help Mexico against the French prevented France from turning around to aid the Confederacy against the Union. Had the French defeated Mexico in Puebla (1862), they would have interfered in our Civil War, according to one historian.
So, here we are many years later, everybody on relatively good terms, all friendly and able to have a nice French wine or icy-cold Mexican beer in celebration. Looks like things worked out well for all sides, in the end.
Happy Cinco de Mayo 2017!
