It's a celebration of Mexican culture like no other -- but how much of what we know about it is actually true? In this episode of Top 5 Myths, Mojo asks questions like, Is it Mexican Independence Day? Are sombreros the traditional dress? Is tequila the drink of choice for this fiesta? Should tacos be served at your party? Is Cinco de Mayo celebrated throughout Mexico? And more. Mojo is looking to dispel some misconceptions based on stereotypes and ignorance, so that no one ends up embarrassing him or herself.
