What is Cinco De Mayo?
Cinco de Mayo is a day to celebrate Mexico’s unexpected triumph over France in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. It’s celebrated on the 5th of May each year.
In 1862, France invaded Mexico and plowed through Mexican cities until they reached the city of Puebla. The Mexican soldiers unexpectedly won the battle.
Although France ended up succeeding at the Second Battle of Puebla, the day is still celebrated. However, this holiday is more popular in the United States than in Mexico.
