I want to personally thank everyone thats celebrating Cinco De Mayo today. Its a holiday that really means alot to me. To see all the local Mexican restaurants celebrating with me is heart warming.

Of course I’m taking about the day just 3 short years ago today (5/5/05) that I started High Performance Computer Services. I’m fairly surprised that I’ve been able to reach national holiday status already but it really is appreciated.

Over at one of my favorite sites wikipedia.org they describe Cinco De Mayo as:

Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “5th of May”) is a regional holiday in Mexico, primarily celebrated in the state of Puebla. It is not an obligatory federal holiday.[1][2][3][4][5] The holiday commemorates an initial victory of Mexican forces led by General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín over French forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. The date is observed in the United States and other locations around the world as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.

They dress it up a bit, misspell my name a little (nathan – ignacio..), I’m not really mexican I just tan easily, and the dates off by a few years, but whatever the general gist of it’s there… somewhere.
