These are, we kid you not, actual questions people Google about Cinco de Mayo

Brooklyn's Mexican community marches down 5th Avenue in the Sunset Park neighborhood during a Cinco de Mayo parade on May 7, 2017 in Brooklyn, New York.

Last year, COVID shut down Los Hermanos Mexican Grill for their busiest day of the year on Cinco De Mayo and now, for some restaurants, this is the new beginning for them after a rough 12 months.
