The History of Cinco de Mayo
Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. The battle was significant because it was the first major military victory for a poorly equipped Mexican Army against a well-trained European force. This battle was part of a much larger struggle, the Franco-Mexican War (1861 – 1867), where Mexico fought for independence from French rule.
Although Cinco de Mayo has become an important cultural holiday in both Mexico and America, it is not to be confused with the day Mexicans finally gained independence, which falls on September 16.
Celebrating Cinco de Mayo the Right Way
Cinco de Mayo is a great excuse to gather with friends and family, feast on delicious Mexican cuisine, sip on refreshing beverages, listen to festive music and compete in fun games. From traditional dishes like guacamole and salsa to street tacos and enchiladas, the food options are nearly endless. And let’s not forget the most popular drink of the holiday, margaritas!
