Happy Cinco De Mayo

The holiday of Cinco De Mayo, The 5th Of May, commemorates the victory of the Mexican militia over the French army at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862. This is not the day that Mexico gained independence, which is what is commonly thought about this specific day.

Thanks for straightening that out. Even in northern Mexico they don't know the meaning behind the holiday. I live just above the border, and 9 out of 10 of my Mexican friends thing May 5 is Mexico Independence day. Cracks me up!

I used to celebrate Cinco De Mayo with my old girlfriend. I always thought it was their independence day. She never told me anything different. Maybe she didn't know either. To be fair, she left Mexico when she was 7.
