What is Cinco de Mayo?
You may be asking, why is Cinco de Mayo celebrated? Well, other than it being Spanish for the 5th of May and all my favorite Mexican restaurants hosting parties, I wasn’t really certain why this day was celebrated. Well, I looked it up and Cinco de Mayo is the annual celebration on the anniversary of Mexico’s victory over the French empire in 1862.
