Cinco de Marcho
Cinco de Marcho is observed next on Sunday, March 5th, 2023 (89 days from today).
Before St. Patrick's Day, the Cinco de Marcho is held annually on March 5 as the start of a 12-day season of training the liver to drink large amounts of alcohol on St. Patrick's Day.
Cinco de Marcho is a drinking festival for those who don't drink often, and want to prepare to drink for the upcoming holiday. Cinco de Marcho was created by Lay O’Le and Carlos Fantastico in 2007. The holiday was created when Lay O’Le and Carlos Fantastico received word that a friend of theirs would be visiting them on the St. Patrick's Day. Although they are not much of a drinker, they rarely drink and know that they must prepare themselves for the upcoming drinking session. They started training their liver by drinking a margarita at a Mexican restaurant on March 5. They thought it was the 5th of the month, like Cinco de Mayo, and they were drinking a blue drink. leaves - color associated with St. Patrick's Day. Cinco de Marcho is not just one day, but a 12-day season leading up to Saint Patrick's Day, with the closing ceremony on that holiday. Besides the inaugural margarita drinking festival, parties can be held at any time of the season.
