2019 | Happy Cinco de Mayo!

2019 | Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “Fifth of May”) is an annual celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862 under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.

In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is more popularly celebrated than Mexico as the date has become associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture. In Mexico, the commemoration of the battle continues to be mostly ceremonial, such as through military parades or battle reenactments.
