May 5

Celebrating Cinco de Mayo has become increasingly popular in the United States, especially in areas with a high Mexican population.

The holiday is a celebration of Mexican culture, of food, music, beverage and customs unique to Mexico.

Cinco de Mayo honors the bravery and victory of Texas-born General Zaragoza's outnumbered militia against the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.
