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 become a day for partying with plenty of tasty, tasty Mexican food and Margaritas!
