    Default Cinco de Mayo & Children's day || May 5th Chat Thread

    Today is Cinco de Mayo! It is a civic holiday that celebrates the rather unlikely victory of Mexican troops over the French forces in the Battle of of Puebla on this day in 1862. The event is also celebrated in many areas of the USA as a day to celebrate the heritage of this culture.

    Today is also Children's day in Japan and South Korea. In Japan it is a day to celebrate each child's unique aspects and focus on their happiness. Japanese house holds will put up Koinobori (carp flags) on a flag pole, usually one for each child. A black and Red carp may also be flown which represent the mother and father.

    In South Korea it is a day to spend time with your family. Parents will give small gifts to their kids and take them out on day trips. Some examples may be to the Zoo or Museums in the area!

    Thomas Edison's last words were 'It's very beautiful over there'.
    I don't know where there is, but I believe it's somewhere, and I hope it's beautiful.
