What Is Cinco de Mayo?
In Mexico, Cinco de Mayo is a national holiday to celebrate the Battle of Puebla where the Mexican army defeated the French army in the city of Puebla on May 5, 1862, during the Second French intervention in Mexico.
In the U.S., Cinco de Mayo is a big party day to drink tequila and celebrate all things Mexican. Food is at the center of the celebration and for good reason. It’s the best way I know how to honor this beautiful culture.
