ByrdAdatto would like to wish everyone a happy Cinco de Mayo! En Español, ¡Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

Cinco de Mayo is an annual celebration held on May 5th.  The date commemorates the celebration of the unlikely Mexican victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862.

In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is often confused with Mexico’s Independence Day, which actually takes place on September 16th.  The U.S. date has become associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture, while in Mexico the commemoration of the battles continues to be mostly ceremonial.

Whether you celebrate with a shot of tequila or endless amounts of guac (we know it costs extra), be sure to enjoy and remember our neighbor to the South’s momentous victory!
