About Cinco de Mayo
Let”s get our tacos straight…I mean facts straight, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day – that”s actually on September 16 – as a matter of fact, Cinco de Mayo is not observed in Mexico as a national holiday and is referred as “Battle of Puebla Day” to commemorate the 1862″s Mexican army”s victory over French forces in the city of Puebla. However, Cinco de Mayo is a great festivity to have in the United States because it has become a mean to celebrate Mexican heritage…and tacos.
