This Wednesday is May 5, otherwise known to Americans as Cinco de Mayo, or the day after May the Fourth. Which means it's time to brace ourselves for an Instagram feed full of people binge-drinking tequila without the slightest idea of what they're celebrating. Whether you can't wait to get in on all the drink and food specials on offer, or just want some funny and honest memes to send to your friends, we've got you covered for Cinco de Mayo.
Keep scrolling for the most relatable Cinco de Drinko memes to share with your non-Mexican friends.
1. Trivia Question: What does Cinco de Mayo actually celebrate?
We celebrate it a lot more in the States than even the Mexicans of Puebla. Extra trivia points for you: Mexican Independence Day is celebrated on September 16.
2. Break out those maracas and tiny sombreros!
It's the one day a year it's borderline socially acceptable to do so, so if you've been itching to sing mariachi songs and buy a piñata, run, don't walk to do so on Wednesday.
3. All drinking holidays are kind of the same...
Don't @ me... For what it's worth, tacos and tequila beat shamrock shakes any day of the week.
4. We all have that friend who's into *technicalities*
Send this meme to them.
5. Get ready for all your favorite GoT characters dressed up in sombreros...
Or not? A girl can dream, right?
6. *Face palm*
