What kind of a Mexican girl would I be if I didn't point out that today is Cinco de Mayo. The funny thing is that I have always thought of this as an American holiday, because in Mexico it isn't as big of a deal. People there actually celebrate September 16th, because that is Mexico's independence day. Despite that, I do like the extra attention to Mexican heritage on this day. I wanted to share this video of Mexico's all-time biggest icon, Pedro Infante. I grew up watching black and white, Spanish movies with my family, and no other actor/singer was ever as important as Pedro Infante.
The scene depicts a long time Mexican tradition of serenading a lucky girl, while standing outside her window. As a little girl I always dreamed of someone serenading me, but unfortunately; there aren't too many wandering mariachis around :(
