Cinco De Mayo

Literal translation: the fifth of May. It is wrongly believed that it is a Mexican Independence day, although in a way it was, its really a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, in actuality the 5th of May  marks a major victory for the Mexican Army on in 1862 when 4,000 Mexican troops defeated 8,000 French troops at the Battle of Puebla. As you can see they were outnumbered but bravely stood their ground and won the day. Gradually it became another Holiday like St. Patrick’s Day, a reason to party and celebrate.
