40. My point is that I lived there

And I know far more about the event ,the history, and how it is remembered and recognized in Mexico than you will ever know.

It is sad that you think that you can dismiss the significance of the event by simply pointing to Wiki or mentioning that you can find six people who've never heard of Cinco de Mayo.

Do you realize that Mexico City alone holds 21.2 million people? Do you realize that Beijing, China, has only 20.2 million people? Did you even know that Mexico City is one of the largest cities in the world?

And based on, what? six people, and a Wiki page you are willing to claim that this celebration is insignificant? To Mexicans? Seriously?
