Default More on Cinco de Mayo

Back in 1890 something Hellman's was all the rage in Mexico, but it was hard to obtain. The population of Mexico got together and bought a large shipment. It was placed on the 3 masted schooner "Huevo Blanco" and they sailed it from New York with the intended destination being Verzcuz, Mexico. On the way the ship ran into a big storm and went down. To celebrate (or mourn) this loss they celebrate every year on the same day "sinko de mayo"...
