In 1862 nearly four thousand greatly outnumbered Mexican soldiers defeated a well-equipped French army of 8,000 that had not been defeated for almost fifty years. Since then no country in the Americas has been invaded by any other European military force.
Cinco de Mayo is the celebration of the Mexican army’s defeat of French forces in the state of Puebla. Though it is commonly mistaken for Mexican Independence Day May 5th has taken on a whole new life beyond that in Mexico. The date is one of the best recognized dates in the United States as a day to celebrate the culture and experiences of another country. Similar to St. Patricks Day and Oktoberfest it is observed by many Americans and other countries around the world.
Regardless of your ethnicity, everyone should have a party on the 5th of May! Cinco de Mayo is a perfect opportunity to have a party, drink some margaritas and spice things up with a few friends or family. Did you know that Mexican dinner parties are one of the most common types of celebrations in America?
