What percentage of the people who are going to get drunk tonight have any idea, even when sober, of the Battle of La Puebla in 1862? An estimate of 5% is probably too generous. They are just being good consumers, following the direction of liquor industry marketing.

My point exactly in the other thread. Its nothing more than another excuse to get shitfaced, and many of them will drive after. Few have any sense of the historical side, most don't care, especially since its not an American holiday. Sadly its become more popular than Thanksgiving in the media and stores.

I wonder how many people, even when sober, realized that yesterday was Quattro di Mustard?
