On Cinco de Mayo, There’s Tacos, Margaritas, Fun, Fiestas, and … Delta-8 THC?

Fresh off the fun of Star Wars Day (May the Fourth be with you!) comes everyone’s favorite day for partying and celebration! It’s a day dedicated to our LatinX friends across the globe and one celebrated with friends and family. Today is a day where we break out the tacos and margaritas, the festivities, and the fun. The fifth day of May is everyone’s favorite cultural celebration, Cinco de Mayo!

And there’s no better day on the calendar to celebrate with Delta-8 THC than today!

Of course, Cinco de Mayo is about much more than just partying. In fact, today is an impactful day in Mexican history and one that has much meaning for the United States as well. History tells us that what happened on Cinco de Mayo changed the course of both countries. And here at Diamond CBD, we not only provide you with outstanding recommendations for Delta-8 THC but amazing history lessons as well. So be prepared, because we have something special in store for you today!

But that’s not all! Because if you thought that Cinco de Mayo was the end of it, you were sorely mistaken.

Today is a day for many celebrations! Did you know that today is Bevrijdingsdag? In Dutch, that means Liberation Day, and it marks the end of the occupation of the Netherlands in the Second World War. There’s no better way to celebrate freedom than with Delta-8 THC! But that’s still not the end of our festivities today!

It’s also National Astronaut Day. Yep, today we celebrate those brave men and women who journey into the final frontier. On top of that, it’s also one of our favorite days around here at Diamond CBD, National Hoagie Day. Some places call them subs, and some places call them heroes, but in the City of Brotherly Love, on the streets of Philadelphia, there’s only one name for these culinary delights — Hoagie! And today, Philly is celebrating in style!

Finally, do you love calculus? How about algebra? Maybe simple addition and subtraction is more your thing. Whatever you prefer, today is your day if you love numbers because it’s World Maths Day! We’re adding up all the Delta-8 THC we can to give you the best deals possible!

As we’ve been doing for a while now, let’s learn about these crazy days and how we can enjoy them with hemp-derived Delta-8 THC.

On Cinco de Mayo, There’s Tacos, Margaritas, Fun, Fiestas, and … Delta-8 THC?
Why do we celebrate National Astronaut Day today? Well, that’s easy. On this day in 1961, Astronaut Alan Bartlett Shepard Jr. became the first person launched into space from the United States.

#CincodeMayo Was Made for Delta-8 THC

Let’s get one thing straight before we move forward. Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day. That is actually a widespread misconception. It is, however, a significant day, not only for the Mexican people but for the whole of North America. May 5 changed the history of our continent in many ways, and that’s why we celebrate it every year. Of course, here at Diamond CBD, we prefer to celebrate with Delta-8 THC!

The whole thing started when Napoleon's forces tried to invade Mexico in 1864. As one website tells us, things didn’t work out so well for the French invaders. “they encountered heavy resistance, culminating at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862,” the site noted. “Even if their forces had half the numbers of their opponents, the Mexican Army, led by Ignacio Zaragoza, managed to successfully win over the French army at Puebla, a city just 70 miles from Mexico City. Four days later, on May 9, Juárez declared Cinco de Mayo a national holiday.”

But that’s not all. Eventually, the French did take control of Mexico in 1864 (booooo!). But the victory on Cinco de Mayo lifted the spirits of the resistance and led them to victory in the end. And that victory had a big impact on the United States as well.

How so? Well, as one website tells it, had the French succeeded, they most likely would have helped the Confederacy in the Civil War. “Since it is believed the French would have likely aided the Confederacy at the Civil War, Mexico’s resistance likely changed the history of the United States,” noted this website.

It continued: “Pro-Union Mexican citizens in the state of California heavily celebrated the victory at the Battle of Puebla viewing it as a victory for the Union’s cause, later formalizing and spreading the annual celebrations across all of California, and Mexican-Americans all around.” So it’s a great day for Mexico and all of North America.

And an excellent day for Delta-8 THC!

There Are Other Reasons To Celebrate with Delta-8 THC Today

There are a few other reasons to celebrate with Delta-8 THC today, May 5. The calendar is jam-packed with all sorts of historical, cultural, and just plain fun festivities. Today is one of those days where you don’t need an excuse to pull out your favorite brand of Delta-8 THC, be it Delta-8 Bites, Chill Plus, or Liquid Gold, but you sure have plenty of them just in case.

Liberation Day, known in Dutch as ‘Bevrijdingsdag’ is today. As the story goes, “After being occupied for several years, in 1945 the army troops of America, Canada, Britain, and Poland entered the Netherlands from the east and succeeded in liberating the eastern and northern provinces. Ultimately, on May 5, an agreement was reached between General Charles Foulkes of the Canadian forces and the German general Johannes Blaskowitz.”

Why do we celebrate National Astronaut Day today? Well, that’s easy. On this day in 1961, Astronaut Alan Bartlett Shepard Jr. became the first person launched into space from the United States. He spent 15 minutes circling the Earth. As for National Hoagie Day, we’re not sure why the folks in Philly decided today is the day to celebrate (after all, we expect they eat hoagies every day there), but we know it’s as good a day as any. We do know that in 1992 former Mayor Ed Rendell declared the hoagie Philly’s official sandwich — sorry, cheesesteak lovers!

Finally, we have World Maths Day. As one website tells us, it all started in 2007. “Created in 2007 by digital learning resource 3P Learning, World Maths Day encourages students around the world to engage in online competitive games centered around mental math problems,” the site noted. “The platform’s games are aimed towards students aged 4-16 with the purpose of improving accuracy and confidence in arithmetic and problem-solving.”

So how will you celebrate these different holidays? With Delta-8 THC? Sounds good to us!
