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 Army and Empire at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Despite being outnumbered and outgunned, the Mexican forces successfully defended the town of Puebla against the French, marking a significant victory for Mexico during the Franco-Mexican War. While Cinco de Mayo is often mistaken for Mexico’s Independence Day (which is actually celebrated on September 16th), it has become a symbol of Mexican pride and heritage, celebrated with parades, music, food, and cultural festivities. It is more widely celebrated in the United States by those of Mexican heritage.
