Mexican Independence Day 2015: Facts, Foods, Traditions, History And Events To Celebrate El Grito

By Elizabeth Whitman / ibtimes

It is a common misconception in the U.S. that Cinco de Mayo, May 5, is Mexican Independence Day. But Sept. 16 is the real date of Mexican independence, which provides at least one more opportunity each year to celebrate Mexico. Here are the facts, foods, traditions and key to a proper celebration of Mexican Independence Day.

The origins of Mexican Independence Day date from 1810, when Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a priest in the small town of Dolores, issued El Grito de Dolores, or “the Cry of Dolores.” Two years earlier, Napoleon’s conquest of Spain presented Mexico,…

George Strait releases new album, will play Las Vegas Arena in 2016

By KIMBERLY PIERCEALL / Associated Press

Country music king George Strait wants to be clear.

His upcoming four shows and likely more at MGM Resorts’ new Las Vegas Arena next year aren’t some re-emergence from retirement.

The 63-year-old may have hung up his touring boots last year after four decades and his record-setting “Cowboy Rides Away” shows, but he’s hardly done singing or performing.

Lily Donaldson, Erin Wasson and Malika Firth all strutted on by – because you don’t walk in this stuff, you strut…..

Do you think coffee is really good or really bad for you?…

(CNN)—Myth or fact? Coffee is good for you.

If you chose fact, you’re right. New studies this week add to dozens more reporting the health benefits of coffee, including protection from type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, liver disease, prostate cancer, Alzheimer’s, computer back pain and more.

But if you chose myth, you’d also be right. There are times when coffee is bad for you, and it depends on your genetics, your age and even how you make your coffee.
