What is Cinco De Mayo
Cinco de Mayo is an official and widely observed holiday in the United States, Mexico, and other countries to honor Mexican heritage and culture. It commemorates the day that the Mexican army defeated the French in a battle on May 5th, 1862, at Puebla. The victory of what was then a relatively small but determined force over what was then one of the most powerful military forces sent a strong message to Mexicans: no foreign power would be allowed to subjugate them ever again. Thus, Cinco de Mayo has become a symbol of strength, resilience, and pride for Mexicans everywhere, not only in what they were able to accomplish militarily on that fateful night over 150 years ago, but also what they have been able to accomplish as a community despite significant hardships over time.
