My thoughts on the amount of violence on TV varies. There are some shows that I would say could be considered too violent but there are people who like them and if that is what they like then so be it. I don't really think there is too much violence. The reason these shows have so much violence is because it is interesting and enjoyable for some people to watch and they make money off of them. The show I chose to do is Supernatural, which is a show about 2 brothers who travel across the country and hunt down paranormal and haunted things. I don't think that there is too much violence in this show, but there is certainly a fair amount. I believe that 14 is the appropriate age to watch this show because that is the advised audience to watch it.

Cinco de Mayo is a holiday that is celebrated by the Mexican culture. The holiday itself is in celebration of the victory at the Battle of Puebla, where the Mexicans defeated Napoleon III and the French forces. Pretty much anybody can celebrate this day, but mainly it is for anyone with a Mexican heritage or someone whose significant other is of Mexican descent. I do not believe this should become a national holiday, or that it ever will. It doesn't make much sense for the US to make it a holiday because we were not involved in the battle and it had really no effect on us.
