Cinco de Mayo ( May 5th) is not a federal holiday in Mexico or the United States. However, it is still celebrated. This day commemorates the Battle of Puebla in which the Mexican army claimed victory over France during the Franco-Mexican War in 1862. In the United States and Mexico, Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of Mexican Heritage with parades, festivals, traditional music and food. For others it is just another reason to get their drink on! (Even if it lands on a Thursday this year)

On May 5, 1862, the Mexican army defeated the French army at the Battle of Puebla. This single military battle signified defeat of a European colonial power, and a victory for the Mexican people. This single battle was the roots of Cinco de Mayo.
What Cinco de Mayo has come to be, is much more than one battle in the colonial history of Mexico. Rather, it has come to signify Hispanic and Mexican pride and a time to celebrate the rich culture.
