Cinco de Mayo, or May 5th, is a day to commemorate the anniversary of Mexico’s battle for independence from the French in 1862. Although Mexican troops were greatly outnumbered and less equipped, on May 5th Mexican forces were able to defeat the French in the Battle of Puebla, one of the first victorious battles to drive out French invaders.

Cinco de Mayo has come to represent the resilience of Mexican culture and is celebrated all over Mexico and the United States with traditions, food, music, parades, and fiestas.
