Cinco de Mayo is the kind of celebration that normally involves music and dancing in the streets, families coming together for the big day, and big parties that just cannot be beaten. However, it’s fair to say that life is a little different at the moment. With more and more people staying at home, it’s not possible for these celebrations to go ahead as normal. That doesn’t mean that you still can’t have fun, though…
Learn Some Spanish
Whether you’re from Mexico or whether you just love to celebrate this holiday, you could always celebrate Cinco de Mayo by learning some Spanish. It’s always good to learn a different language, and it’s even better when you can speak Spanish on this special day, as you can really get into the swing of things. Por favor?
Mariachi musicians are always present at Cinco de Mayo celebrations, and the lockdown has probably hit them hard. Without parades to play in and without parties to attend, they have put away their instruments and may be struggling. You can help them out, though, by streaming their music online or even buying their music to give them some income during a holiday that they’re missing as much as you.
Support Your Local Mexican Restaurant
You don’t have to live in Mexico to taste traditional Mexican food, so why not support your local Mexican restaurant during lockdown? There’s no doubt about the fact that they will be open for the annual Cinco de Mayo crowd, so you can taste some Mexican delights and drink some tequila while you’re at it. What could be better than that?
Just because we’re stuck inside doesn’t mean that you can’t celebrate Cinco de Mayo. There are so many ways that you can celebrate Cinco de Mayo at home, so why not try them all? You’re sure to have the best day possible.
