Let’s start this post with a little history. Cinco de Mayo is May 5th, in the United States we often associate it with the celebration of Mexican American culture.
Many people in the U.S. believe it is Mexican Independence Day and if you believe this you would be wrong!
In Mexico, Cinco de Mayo, is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.
It is more a ceremonial celebration.
Mexican independence Day is celebrated on September 16, a second reason to celebrate!
