Can’t wait to wish all your friends a Happy Cinco de Mayo? First, make sure you know what you’re talking about.

Depending on who you ask, Cinco de Mayo is either an important celebration of Mexican heritage or a glorified Taco Tuesday. What it is not is Mexican Independence Day (which is September 16). In fact, Cinco de Mayo isn’t even widely celebrated in Mexico.

With that out of the way, here are some clever Cinco de Mayo greetings you can share with your friends. These messages come in a variety of styles, but most reflect the lighthearted nature of the holiday as it’s celebrated in the United States. They go down especially well when paired with a jumbo margarita and some nachos (but then, what doesn’t?).
