    Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for "fifth of May") is a voluntarily-observed holiday that commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Segun. It is celebrated primarily in the state of Puebla and in the United States. While Cinco de Mayo has limited significance nationwide in Mexico, the date is observed in the United States and other locations around the world as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's Independence Day, the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico.

    a BATTLE won, but

    a lost war. I don't begrudge anyone for choosing to celebrate, but I find it interesting that this was a war LOST by Mexico....How can it be thought of as their "Independance Day"?

    I suppose we could celebrate the Tet Offensive on January 31st......

    It isn't their Independence Day, hun.

    IMHO, it's just a time to celebrate heritage and have some fun. Have some fabulous Mexican food and good drink :) Isn't that why St. Patrick's Day is so great? Everyone is Irish on March 17th and everyone has some Hispanic in them on May 5th. (although, it may be hard to pull off for some of us albino folk ;) ) :HappyDay:
