Official Discussion

Greetings! As you may recall, last month’s issue of the Daily Prophet was all about Cinco de Mayo! If you missed May’s issue, then never fear; you can check it out here!

Cinco de Mayo, which is also called the “Anniversary of the Battle of Puebla,” is a holiday that is celebrated in parts of Mexico and the United States to help honor the military's victory over Napoleon III in 1862.

- Even though Cinco de Mayo is a lesser known holiday, do you think that it should be celebrated more or at a larger scale than it currently is?

- Do you enjoy this holiday, or is it something that you can live without? Why?

Quite frankly, it’s noon here and I’m hungry so my favorite article is the “From the Kitchen” section. That Green Pozole sounds so good right now. Soup in general sounds SO GOOD right now. And the Pozole sounds delicious. A big hot bowl of pozole, yum. It also doesn’t seem like it would be all that hard for me to make it. Speaking of food, my favorite Mexican dish is tamales. I LOVE tamales although I always have to have a large glass of milk next to me when I eat them because it’s spicy to me. I like the chicken tamales better than the pork ones, possibly because they are not as spicy. The rice pudding sounds okay. Rice pudding doesn’t really have much taste to it, at least not the ones that I have tried. I don’t really pay much mind to Cinco de Mayo but I see no reason that it shouldn’t be celebrated on a wider scale. I don’t do anything special and never really register that it is a holiday. Food, friends and fun all sound good to me. Perhaps if one lives in an area with a large Hispanic presence, there might be more celebration.

Is there a favorite Mexican dish that you enjoy making or eating?
Refried Bean Tostadas adding a lot of spice to it. The hotter the better. I like it when it is hot enough to bring tears to my eyes.(using vegetable oil instead of lard) When it comes to food I have to improvise since I am vegetarian.
Even though Cinco de Mayo is a lesser known holiday, do you think that it should be celebrated more or at a larger scale than it currently is?
Sure, I think it would be great to see a Cinco de Mayo festival near me. I love festivals that expose me to other cultures and their food, holidays and customs. I was introduced to Cinco de Mayo when I took Spanish in high school. On Cinco de Mayo the teacher would bring in Mexican food and slides from her visit and celebrating the holiday when she visited Mexico.
Do you normally do anything special for Cinco de Mayo? If so, what? If not, do you wish you did? Why or why not?
No. I really don't celebrate any holiday. No one around here celebrates it, at least not in public. Even the local restaurant does not do anything special. The few Mexican dishes that are vegetarian I love. We have a very small Hispanic population here. Nothing (that I know of) is celebrated in the general public. It's a shame. I think people would love real Mexican food if they were exposed to it.
- Do you enjoy this holiday, or is it something that you can live without? Why?
I do live without it. It is not celebrated anywhere near me. I don't cook so making any dish would be hard. There are very few Mexican restaurants near me...Just Taco Bell and Cancun Mexican Restaurant. Taco Bell I hate. Cancun is good. I eat there a few times a year.

My favourite article, as always, was the Sports feature. I am sports mad and immediately fell in love with Quidditch. The article offered a real insight into the Mexican Quidditch team and I feel like I know more about their history. Well; I didn’t know anything so I guess that wouldn’t be difficult, would it?

Although I know the history behind the holiday, Brits don’t tend to do anything special for Cinco de Mayo. I do wish I knew somewhere in this country that celebrated the occasion; I would love to get a feel for Mexican culture without going to Mexico. It’s not as if I wouldn’t want to go there; the country isn’t the most wheelchair friendly, however.

My stomach can not tolerate spice of any sort so most Mexican food would make me feel ill. I do, however, like the look of Mexican Penne With Avocado. I obviously wouldn’t want much spice but I’m sure that, if it were made from scratch, the spicy ingredients could be left out. Of course, there’s also the challenge of my nut allergy but that’s another story.

I would love for Cinco de Mayo to be celebrated on a larger scale. As I’ve said, I know the history behind it but I would love to get a true taste of Mexican culture.

I liked the Sports article. I had never thought about the Mexican Quidditch team before and it was interesting.

I am a fan of Mexican food and eat quite a bit of it. My favorite has to be to drink horchata! Yum!

I think it is celebrated more than people know. However, at least in the U.S., I think a lot of people just use it as an excuse to party, lol

Quote:

I have to say I enjoy making sure I eat Mexican food at every meal. We do not have a large Mexican community in my area, but it is growing, so maybe they will have a larger celebration in the future,

It is a drink made from ground seeds, spices, nuts and milk. It is a really creamy and delicious drink! It has things like Nutmeg, vanilla and other flavors in it.

Not as thick as a shake, but really good. You can find recipes on line. One of my former students turned me on to it a few years ago. From what I understand there are different types depending on what the country of origin is.

I apologize in advance for my long answers, I got a bit frustrated when I was writing a couple of them. Especially the first one.

Which article was your favorite in this issue? Why?

I am a massive lover of food, so naturally I thought that I would say that my favorite article in this issue was going to be the "From the Kitchen" article. However, upon reflection, I would say that my favorite article was the "Politics" article. Obviously, I fall under the category of a millennial, so often people sometimes tend to ignore both me and my opinions, especially since I am a woman. However, I am proud to be a woman, and I am proud to call myself a feminist. More and more, the world is looking like an un-safe world for not only me as a woman, but also those that are considered minorities and those that identify themselves in the LGBTQ+ spectrum. Unfortunately, those that are in power, that claim to be the ones that are looking out for us, don't always have our best interests at heart. Take for example the recent "Heartbeat" abortion bill, which outlaws a woman's choice to have an abortion once a fetal heartbeat has been detected. This angers me greatly, not only because they are deciding that they can control our bodies (which they can't), but that the bill was approved by middle aged, white men. No one but ourselves has the right to do that, as they are our bodies and our choices and our rights and it is our voice that needs to be heard. In recent years, I have been paying closer attention to things that are happening around the world, not only with climate change, but mainly to do with politics and the U.S. government. It is difficult to express my opinion sometimes, mainly because my mother supports Donald Trump (or at least acknowledges his positives, I can't be certain), whilst I am in the opposite side of the spectrum in relation to political views. Oftentimes, I do feel myself facepalming whenever he tweets out another disparaging remark about someone who has spoken up against him. I would like to apologize first and foremost to any of the people that read this who are supporters of him, I am not trying to insult you, I simply want to get my thoughts and opinions out there. I fully support your political views, I just ask that you support mine in return. One of the main things that does upset me is how often Donald Trump insults other individuals, particularly those that are leaders of other nations, and also that of their people. One of those is especially that of Mexico, who he referred to as some rather un-kind things and further disparages them. He has attempted to get funding and support for his wall since I believe he came into office, and the symbolism behind the wall is rather cruel, I am afraid to say. It seems like every day we hear of new stories coming from the border, whether it be a child taken from her mother, or some other horror story. We as a human race should be coming together and uniting, not constantly trying to incite fear and hate amongst each other and against those that we believe threaten us. Instead of inciting riots, committing hate crimes against those of color, harming each other, we should be thinking of ways that we can save our planet. Climate change is increasing rapidly, it seems like more and more animals are being put onto the endangered species list every day, the oceans are rising, and plastics in our sea is at a dangerous level and I am sad to say that I am terrified for our planet. We were given a chance to treat our planet kindly, and we have completely disrespected it and if we aren't careful, the future for us and that of the future for our children looks increasingly bleak. We must do better.

Is there a favorite Mexican dish that you enjoy making or eating?

I don't eat Mexican dishes that often, mainly because I have a rather bland taste palette and I can't handle spicy foods. The only Mexican dish that I really eat is tacos with all of the trimmings. Every once in a while, Mum and I will have a Taco Night and we will buy everything. We'll get hard and soft shells and ground meat, tomatoes, onion, sour cream, lettuce, everything you could possibly want in a taco and I could easily put away four of them.

Even though Cinco de Mayo is a lesser known holiday, do you think that it should be celebrated more or at a larger scale than it currently is?

I am torn on this question. On one hand I would say yes, that I would love to see Cinco De Mayo being celebrated on a larger scale, because it would bring us together and it would also help us understand and appreciate their culture and heritage more. Unfortunately, here is my problem: When does it move from being cultural appreciation into the territory of cultural appropriation? I see stories all of the time, especially of celebrities, that are accused of appropriating certain aspects of different cultures. What I'm worried about is that these people who thought that it was okay to do that sort of stuff before, would all of a sudden have an excuse for their appropriation. Does that make sense? I am sorry if that came out wrong, I tried to explain my worries as clear as possible.

Do you normally do anything special for Cinco de Mayo? If so, what? If not, do you wish you did? Why or why not?

I remember when I was in school, we would have celebrations for Cinco De Mayos. However, as I find myself growing older, I don't celebrate Cinco De Mayo all that much. I feel like, nowadays, people just use it as an excuse to get drunk and disguise it as celebrating a holiday. I hope that I put that across okay, in a respectful manner.


Do you enjoy this holiday, or is it something that you can live without? Why?

I do enjoy this holiday, even though I do not celebrate it like others choose to. I feel like it is important that different cultures are celebrated, and that we are respectful about it. We are all humans, we just have different cultures and traditions in various parts of the world, so why wouldn't we have equal opportunities to celebrate them?

- Which article was your favorite in this issue? Why?

To be frank, the only article I ever read is the Wizarding Crimes article because I’m very interested in crime and law enforcement (I want to be a Federal Agent). The story about the witch who got drunk and used magic around muggles was hilarious and definitely put a smile on my face. It reminded me of an episode of The Flash where Barry Allen got drunk and started telling people that he was the Flash. 😂

-Is there a favorite Mexican dish that you enjoy making or eating?

Tacos. Boring, I know, but I love tacos. Most Mexican foods are too spicy for me, so I don’t really eat that much Mexican food, but I do love tacos (without any kind of spice obviously).

-Even though Cinco de Mayo is a lesser known holiday, do you think that it should be celebrated more or at a larger scale than it currently is?

Yes, Cinco de Mayo definitely should be celebrated more. I didn’t really know much about Cinco de Mayo until this year when I had to research the holiday in Spanish class, but I learned a lot about it. The Battle of the Puebla is a fight that the underdogs won. The Mexicans were vastly outnumbered and far from prepared, yet they still managed to win with hardly any casualties because they weren’t just fighting because their general ordered them to. They were fighting for their homes, their friends, and their families. This battle is both a symbol and a reminder that even if the odds are stacked against us, as long as we believe in ourselves and what we are fighting for there will always be hope.

-Do you normally do anything special for Cinco de Mayo? If so, what? If not, do you wish you did? Why or why not?

I have never done anything special for Cinco de Mayo because I didn’t really know what it was. My family doesn’t care about any holidays except for the major ones (Christmas, Easter, etc.) so I was just never told much about Cinco de Mayo. Now that I have learned about the holiday though, from my research in Spanish class, I definitely will celebrate this holiday moving forward. I’m not exactly sure what I’ll do to celebrate it, but I’ll figure that out in time.

-Do you enjoy this holiday, or is it something that you can live without? Why?

I think that I could probably live without any holiday because I don’t have a HUGE emotional attachment to any holiday. However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy them. I haven’t really enjoyed Cinco de Mayo in the past because I didn’t know much about it, but I imagine I will enjoy it in the future now that I know what it is (This is starting to feel like deja vu).

- Which article was your favorite in this issue? Why? 
I'm always a big lover of the From The Kitchen articles, and this one didn't disappoint! But I also really liked the Sports article about the Mexican Quidditch Team.

- Is there a favorite Mexican dish that you enjoy making or eating? Quesadillas! Generally anything with hot, gooey cheese is amazing and Quesadillas are no exception. I tend to make mine at home with mushrooms, cheddar and Quorn "chicken style" pieces( as I'm a vegetarian) and I fry the tortillas in oil until they're slightly crispy on the outside - yum! I also love vegetarian empanadas but I've never made them myself just had them when eating out. Churros are also a favourite - how can you not love churros dipped in melted chocolate? Yum!

- Do you normally do anything special for Cinco de Mayo? If so, what? If not, do you wish you did? Why or why not? Until today I didn't even know what Cinco de Mayo was, so no I've never celebrated or done anything special for it. I'm still not entirely sure what Cinco de Mayo involves so I'm not sure I can answer this question in full.

- Do you enjoy this holiday, or is it something that you can live without? Why? Well I have lived without it for the thirty-two years I've been alive so yes, it's something I can live without. I have no idea whether I would enjoy it or not as I have never experienced a Cinco de Mayo before. I do have Mexican neighbours though, so perhaps I'll ask them about it!

I am actually not a fan of Mexican food - mostly because a lot of places that make Mexican food (in my country at least) make the food a certain degree of spicy, and I don't like spicy food. As in, if there is any sign of it being spicy, even just a little bit, I don't like it. There is one place that I tried that makes non-spicy burrito, so I guess that was nice. Still not really among my favorite dishes though ^^
Churros is something I like, if that counts! It's a dessert, and not one of my favorites either, but it's hard to dislike something sweet XD

I think Cinco de Mayo is known in the circles which celebrate it and see its importance. I don't think it needs to be more widely known in the same way that I don't expect my holidays to be known and recognized globally. I think it's natural that evey culture has its own holidays that aren'y always heard of in other places around the world, and that's okay.

I don't do anything special on Cinco de Mayo, as it isn't celebrated in my country
As such, it is of course something that I can live without - and ineed I do live without it. Unless you told me that it's happening, even if it's literally the date, I wouldn't even think about it..

So, I was never really a Mexican dish fan. My mother loved Mexican and I was a difficult and picky child, haha! Basically, I missed out tremendously as a child because Mexican food is absolutely delicious. My favorite food is a quesadilla. I enjoy the traditional chicken and cheese quesadilla, but I also love American spins on the dish. One of my go-tos at a local restaurant is the Hawaii 5-0 with BBQ sauce and pineapples. It is so yummy!

I have to be completely honest, around here it is only celebrated as an excuse to drink. I do not truly know the history behind the holiday. Therefore, I’m not sure that it should be celebrated more or less?

The only thing I used to do for Cinco de Mayo was go out to the bar with some friends. They would have fun different beers on tap and it was just an excuse to get out of the house. However, I live in the northern United States so we do not have a large Mexican population.

Now that I am older, I do not actually celebrate this holiday anymore. So, I could go without this holiday, at least in the going out and drinking sense.

- Which article was your favorite in this issue? Why?

I loved reading about the update on the Death Eater mariachi band. I laughed at how they used magic to make the muggles dance to death instead of using spells to torture or kill them and I’m looking forward to the promised updates.

- Is there a favorite Mexican dish that you enjoy making or eating?

I don’t really have a favorite dish but I do like to make tacos as well as eat them. I’ve also made chicken Quesada’s and enjoy going out to a Mexican restaurant and eating other Mexican foods such as enchiladas.

- Even though Cinco de Mayo is a lesser known holiday, do you think that it should be celebrated more or at a larger scale than it currently is?

No, I don’t think it needs to be celebrated on larger scale than it already is at least not where I live. I live in the United States and since it is really a Mexican holiday, I don’t think there is any reason to celebrate more here. Not that I mind another holiday. Holidays are always fun and I do enjoy learning about holidays others celebrate.

- Do you normally do anything special for Cinco de Mayo? If so, what? If not, do you wish you did? Why or why not?

No, I don’t usually do anything special because it’s not a holiday I really celebrate. Sometimes I might go to a Cinco de Mayo themed party but other than that I don’t celebrate it.

- Do you enjoy this holiday, or is it something that you can live without? Why?

I enjoy the holiday because I enjoy all holidays but it’s not an important holiday to me and is therefore one, I could live without.

My favorite Mexican dish has to be either quesadillas or nachos. While there are a lot of Americanized versions of these, when you find real authentic dishes, it is a real treat. While I try making these at home, I find it very difficult to replicate the authentic versions, even though I can make the Americanized version fairly easily. My favorite authentic dish at school was certainly the authentic chicken nachos, with spicy chicken, a modified queso, peppers and onions on chips. Alternatively chicken or steak quesadillas with Mexican cheese, lettuce, salsa, and queso are quite a treat! I also recommend trying Sopapillas (if I spelled that correctly) if you get the chance. It's like a fried dough covered in cinnamon and spices, which make it all kinds of gooey deliciousness when hot!

I really enjoy Cinco de Mayo, even though I don’t know much history of it besides it’s a war holiday. I generally celebrate by going to a Mexican restaurant and trying to absorb myself in the culture by being as authentic as possible! While it is something I could live without, it is something that I enjoy, and a bit of a tradition I have with myself at this point.

I enjoyed reading ,,Expose: Mariachi band update!’’ article the most. I think it was well written and very interesting and fun piece to read.

I haven’t eaten that many Mexican dishes, but the ones I do like are burritos, tacos and Enchiladas, though the last ones I only eat that aren’t chilli. I expect that without chilli takes away the Mexican feeling of it, but I just can’t stand pepper or chili of any kind. That is also why I don’t eat a lot of Mexan foods as I’ve heard that they like spicy meals.
I think that of course it could be celebrated in a larger scale, especially if people who celebrate it want that and feel it's a necessity. As so many traditions grow bigger overtime I can’t see why this one could not. I think it deserves to be celebrated in a larger scale as it celebrates an important victory for them and these things deserve to be known on a larger scale.
I am very far from Mexico to even know their celebrations, but now that I did some research on it, I see that I would very much love to witness it myself and take part in it, even if it’s just to support their history.

- Which article was your favorite in this issue? Why?
From the Kitchen is normally my favorite article each month and with it being a Mexican dish was icing on the cake. I love Mexican food and the Green Pozole sounded very tasty.

- Is there a favorite Mexican dish that you enjoy making or eating?
I love a shredded chicken burrito with a cheese quesadilla or chips and fresh salsa on the side. We have a little taco drive-through in our town called Victor's Taco Shop that is amazing, it's a family favorite for something good & fast when we are tired on the weekend.

- Even though Cinco de Mayo is a lesser known holiday, do you think that it should be celebrated more or at a larger scale than it currently is?
I live in a small college town and just outside of my states capital so Cinco de Mayo is celebrated largely here. Both of my kids had big celebrations for the event when they were in high school, it was never overlooked as something that others celebrated and we didn't.

- Do you normally do anything special for Cinco de Mayo? If so, what? If not, do you wish you did? Why or why not?
We normally have some kind of Mexican for dinner , pick-up or something homemade. I guess I don't know much about the French- Mexican War, just that Mexico celebrates their win every year on May 5th.

- Do you enjoy this holiday, or is it something that you can live without? Why?
I do enjoy this holiday each year and any holiday event that is celebrated with good food is a plus in my eyes.
