Cinco de Mayo


 Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for "fifth of May") is a holiday held on May 5. It is celebrated nationwide in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla. 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. Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's Independence Day, the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico, which is celebrated September 16.


Living in San Antonio, TX for several years I learned the importance of the Mexican Heritage Celebration and they do party!

 "Happy Cinco de Mayo"
