What is Cinco de Mayo?

mexican

Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of culture and freedom, commemorating the May 5, 1862 victory of an outnumbered Mexican Army against the French imperial invaders in the Town of Puebla, Mexico. Ironically, Mexican-Americans and non-Latinos celebrate the holiday more in the United States than people in Mexico do. Today, Cinco de Mayo has taken on party-friendly connotations here in the States. Feel free to hoist a margarita or eat a taco to celebrate it, but be respectful and refrain from wearing racist costumes. You may also wish to avoid corporate chains and instead explore authentic Mexican cuisine.
