Susan Slaughter Has Two Birthdays

She though says of preferring to celebrate her birth anniversary on May 5 partly because her real birthday always happens in the middle of the week.
One other reason she prefers the 5th is the day is on the occasion of Cinco de Mayo, an annual celebration that commemorates the anniversary of Mexico’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.
Slaughter states it is her adopted birthday.
