|In the nearest city to where I live right now, March 6th is honored by the Mexican-American population - almost all of whom are bi-lingual and very proud of their Mexican heritage. It's both interesting, and lot of fun, to go into that part of the city and toast the Alamo there on March 6th. Just as almost everyone claims to Irish on Saint Patrick's day, those of Mexican heritage all claim to be "Texan-Mexican Americans" on March 6th. Some years ago, one of the more prominent and successful Mexican-American businessmen built a restaurant there that he worked hard to make an exact replica of The Alamo, according to scale. Sadly, it closed last year - but it was a landmark for some time.
