“while on a cruise different places in South America I picked up a Spanish newspaper and found that they didn’t celebrate Cinco de mayo there. There was a article on it and they said only the Chicanos here celebrate it they don’t.”

this shows several misconceptions:

a) may 5th is a mexican national holiday.  mexico is in central america, not south america.  there is no reason for people in any south american country  (argentina? bolivia? venezuela?) to celebrate a mexican national holiday.  in the united states, we don’t celebrate australian national holidays.

b) a spanish newspaper?  in south america?   they had imported newspapers all the way from spain?  must have been expensive.

c) in mexico, they do celebrate cinco de mayo.  it’s a mexican national holiday.
