Cinco de Mayo

What is Cinco de Mayo? When is it?

You have no idea how many times I hear these same questions over and over again! If you have ever taken a spanish class, you already know the answers! Cinco means five. Mayo means May. So when is cinco de mayo? The fifth of May.

Now “what is cinco de mayo?” is a better question. Some people say it’s just another reason to have a party. Okay, commercialism has intervened in America once again (not necessarily a bad thing…just a statement) and it is a very commercialized day for sales and parties. I have been told it is a bigger celebration here than in Mexico. I have always been told it is the celebration of Mexico’s independence day. well, if you look it up, here is what you might find:

“The date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride,and to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War.

In the state of Puebla, 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 Seguín.

Contrary to widespread popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day—the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico—which is actually celebrated on September 16.” (wikipedia—of course)

So if you NEED a reason to celebrate, then here you are….cinco de mayo! If you don’t…Party away–in your own way of course…


This year I have a few friends who are graduating ON cinco de mayo! So I have plenty to celebrate this year! Check back….hopefully I have some wonderful party pics to share with you!
