With summer just around the bend, a party seems like a great way to start May. How about Cinco de Mayo? The 5th of May commemorates the 1862 victory of the Mexican army over French troops at the Battle of Puebla. These days it means having a great time with family and friends, maybe a pinata, and of course, lots of great Mexican food!
In a silly mood? Limericks may be just the thing to get your party fever started. Edward Lear’s birthday, May 12, is also known as Limerick Day. If you don’t find one you like, you absolutely must try writing your own.
