    My favorite day in May would be the 5th because it’s Cinco de Mayo and it’s a great day to celebrate their culture and I love their unique celebration! It’s also a day where my family and I eat tacos and I love tacos.

    The whole month of May is actually Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month, which is cool because this month is about embracing my Asian culture and background.

    If I were to choose one day in May, though, I would probably say that May 28, National Burger Day, is my favorite. What better way to spend a holiday, than enjoying some juicy, over-the-top burgers. 😉
