What Is Cinco de Mayo?

Many people don’t really understand the reason for celebrating this event. So here’s a little history lesson for you. Celebrated on May 5th, Cinco De Mayo is a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. The date is also observed to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

Celebrations continued on a yearly basis, and by the 1930s it was seen as an opportunity to celebrate Mexican identity, promote ethnic consciousness, and build community solidarity. Clearly, the holiday has become quite the celebration, perhaps even larger than St. Patrick’s Day.
