It’s almost time to get ready for a Mexican fiesta!  Here’s a fun fact: While many believe Cinco de Mayo is Mexico’s Independence Day, that’s actually incorrect.  Known as the Anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, Cinco De Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over Napoleon III’s French soldiers on May 5, 1862. Cinco de Mayo also marks the last time in history that a European military force invaded a country in the Americas. In Mexico, the day is celebrated with speeches and parades. Some cities even create reenactments of the famous battle.

In the United States, Cinco de Mayo has become a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. The day is celebrated with many traditional festivities– music, dancing, drinking, and lots of delicious Mexican food! It’s not uncommon for the holiday celebration to last an entire week, especially in areas with large Mexican-American populations.
