Happy Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is an annual celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s difficult victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.

It’s also a time for many to celebrate with Mexican food and drink. It seems to be another reason to have a big party. No matter how you celebrate have fun, be safe and remember the reasons for the day.

  1. A coworker from Mexico assures me that Americans make a much bigger deal out of Cinco de Mayo than Mexicans do. I suspect the same is true for St. Patrick’s Day & the Irish. Americans look for any excuse to party hard and consume mass quantities of alcohol, don’t we?

  2. Cinco de Mayo, St Patrick’s Day, Derby Day…. all excuses to eat food and drink alcohol. And for me, blog, since I’m a food blogger 😄
