Happy Mexican Pride Day!
Most people think today is Mexico’s independece, but it isn’t. Here’s the deal:
Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “fifth of May”) is a celebration held on May 5. It is celebrated in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla, where the holiday is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla). It originated with Mexican-American communities in the American West as a way to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War, and today the date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.
Everyone is Mexican today! What are you doing to celebrate?
I may have some tacos and guacamole lol
