Office fun: Cicada de Mayo

Every 17 years, the cicada come out of hibernation. In the spring, they emerge from underground, shed their shells, fly around, mate and then die.

To celebrate this amazing cycle, I organized a party at work. We called the festival "Cicada de Mayo."  Co-workers made guacamole, pea pods, grape leaves and other green-colored foods. We filled a buggy-looking pinata with candies and let people take a whack at it.

It was an afternoon of silliness. But you know what they say about all work and no play.
