For A Friend

Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo. Cinco de Mayo is a national holiday in Mexico which is also widely celebrated in the United States. It commemorates the victory of Mexican forces led by General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguin over the French occupational forces in the Battle of Puebla.

The reference to the Battle of Puebla is seen as a symbolic cultural link to those who had to overcome insurmountable odds while facing adversity.

My friend is facing some pretty difficult odds and I wish my friend only the best.

So we are going to put "the lime in the coconut and drink it all up," throw salt over our left shoulders and plant lavender for luck.
