Understanding Cinco De Mayo:

Cinco de Mayo, which translates to the “Fifth of May” in Spanish, commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day (which is celebrated on September 16th). Instead, it celebrates the courage and resilience of the Mexican people in the face of adversity. For children, it’s important to emphasize the significance of this event in Mexican history, highlighting themes of bravery and national pride.
