Cinco de Mayo in the United States

In the US, Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a holiday celebrating the cultural heritage of Americans with Latian American, especially Mexican, roots.

It's an American celebration along the same lines as Saint Patrick's Day, Oktoberfest; or local festivals like Tabor, South Dakota’s Czech Days, or Danish Days in Viborg.

What is Cinco de Mayo?

Literately it is the 5th of May. In Mexico, it is a holiday that commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over France at the 1862 Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War.

In Mexico, the holiday has traditionally only been regionally celebrated. But in the 21st Century, it has become something special north of the border.
