Today is the day the official day of observance for the birthday of Presidente Benito Juárez, which is actually on March 21. So Mexico gave itself a 3-day weekend. Don't you watch, read or listen to any Mexican news sources? Asking for a friend.

As a matter of fact I do have a TV in the house that is tuned to a Mexican station. And, no, I don't understand any of what they say. And my wife has many relatives in the U.S. that have TV sets but they don't tune them to English speaking channels because they don't understand what is being said. They like Spanish speaking channels because that it the language they understand.

And I asked around the house if anyone knew what some business were closed and no one knew.

Really? If you're living here you should learn these things. We're only here 5/6 months but still know the holidays plus Rob posts them here.
