Throughout the United States, Cinco de Mayo is seen as a day to enjoy Mexican culture, traditions and food. It’s a time to drink, dance, and celebrate the flavor of Mexico.
In Mexico, however, Cinco de Mayo isn’t just a celebration, it’s a commemoration of valor on the battlefield. On May 5th, 1862, an outnumbered Mexican army faced a formidable French army. Against all odds, they emerged victorious at the Battle of Puebla – a battle that represents a great symbolic victory for all of Mexico.
So, no matter how you celebrate Cinco de Mayo, raise a glass to the Fighting Spirit that pushes us forward.
