Sometimes mistaken for Mexico’s Independence Day – celebrated on September 16 – Cinco de Mayo is Mexico’s anniversary over the Second French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. More popular in America than Mexico, Cinco de Mayo has become a celebration of Mexican-American culture.
Americans celebrate it as a drinking holiday where parades, parties and traditional foods are the honored guests. But, don’t be surprised to hear mariachi music and see traditional Mexican folk dancing.
