Cinco de Mayo

Do you know the meaning of Cinco de Mayo? Most Americans do not and we probably celebrate it anyway with Mexican food and maybe a margarita or two. Cinco de Mayo actually means May 5. It marks the day of Mexico’s unlikely defeat of Napoleon’s French army in 1862.

Happy Cinco de Mayo to our Mexican friends!

“Cinco de Mayo has come to represent a celebration of the contributions that Mexican Americans and all Hispanics have made to America.” Joe Baca
