TODAY IS THE DAY

Cinco de Mayo is not a celebration of Mexican Independence.


Celebrate the fateful day General Zaragoza fearlessly turned back the Second French Intervention at the Battle of Puebla.

Seems this day is celebrated for the wrong historical reason.

Here’s a short video explaining the history behind the day which we celebrate with music, eating, drinking and partying.

Hope you enjoy it!

What’s the history behind Cinco de Mayo?

Cinco de Mayo, also called Anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, holiday celebrated in parts of Mexico and the United States in honor of a military victory in 1862 over the French forces of Napoleon III.

However, that one successful battle didn’t drive the French out of Mexico.

Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s independence day. Mexican independence is celebrated Sept.16. Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over the French forces of Napoleon III on May 5, 1862, at the Battle of Puebla.

A Brief History & Facts About Cinco De Mayo Cinco de Mayo on Fifth of May is a commemoration of the victory of an outnumbered army of Mexicans over the French forces at the Battle of Puebla that took place May 5, 1862.

The triumph of the Mexicans proved to the world that their will to defend their nation’s sovereignty would prevail against a powerful foreign invader.

Mexico may have lost battles after that great victory but Cinco de Mayo will always be a reminder to every one that a grain of hope, no matter how small and insignificant to others, can make the impossible, possible.
