Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was
manufactured in England . In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of
the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico , which was to be
the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York . This
would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to
Mexico . But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York . The
ship hit an iceberg and sank. The people of Mexico , who were crazy about
mayonnaise, and were eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the
loss. Their anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of
Mourning.

The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known, ofcourse, as -Sinko De Mayo.
