Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo which is Spanish for "fifth of May" is a holiday held on May 5 to commemorate the Mexican army's May 5, 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War.

A holiday for Mexico, but it has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture in the United States.

Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's Independence Day which occurs on September 16th and is the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico.

So how will you celebrate? For us it is Mexican Food for lunch. :)
