CINCO DE MAYO

In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is seen as THE day to celebrate Mexican food, culture, and traditions

As time has passed, the historical context of  ‘Cinco de Mayo‘ started to be forgotten.

History of Cinco de Mayo in the US
In 1862, at the time the Battle of Puebla took place, the United States was engaged in its Civil War. The French presence in Mexico was a strategic move:

by gaining a toehold in Mexico, the French could then support the Confederate Army.

The defeat of the French at the Battle of Puebla was not definitive, but it helped to stave off the French while the U.S. Union forces made advances.
Thus Cinco de Mayo can be seen as a turning point in the US Civil War.

Cinco de Mayo was first celebrated in the United States in Southern California in 1863 as a show of solidarity with Mexico against French rule.

IT’S FIVE O’CLOCK SOMEWHERE ALWAYS

Americans usually make a bigger deal of this date than Mexicans do.

I guess because a party is enjoyed anytime.

Wonder how many will celebrate this year!

Cinco de Mayo, Spanish for “Fifth of May”, is a celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate 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.

In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken to be Mexico’s Independence Day – the most important national holiday in Mexico – which is celebrated on September 16, commemorating the Cry of Dolores that initiated the war of Mexican independence from Spain.
