(May 05) Today we're celebrating. . . Cinco De Mayo


Cinco De Mayo
Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not a celebration of Mexico’s Independence Day, but rather a celebration of the Mexican defeat over the French in the Battle of Puebla.

But throughout the US, Cinco de Mayo has beome a day for partying with plenty of tasty, tasty Mexican food and Margaritas!

One of my personal favorite holidays of the year, I was introduced to Cinco de Mayo while living in Los Angeles many, many moons ago! I’ve had many celebrations and parties for Cinco de Mayo over the years and look forward to a nice jumbo strawberry margarita this weekend! Sweeeeeet!!

    Happy Cinco de Mayo! I came across your site while doing a blog search on the holiday.

    I never really knew about the holiday’s origin until I looked it up today. I had no idea that it had to do with the French occupation. Like most Americans, I mistakenly thought it was Mexican Independence Day.

    I was glad to learn otherwise.

    To commemorate cinco de mayo, I drew a picture for my website. I think it’s funny. Click my name to see it.
