Happy Cinco de Mayo! Although this holiday has its roots grounded in Mexico, Cinco de Mayo has become a popular day of celebration in the United States. It’s not surprising, considering more than 17% of the United States population is Hispanic. Many people celebrate Cinco de Mayo, but few know the actual origin of this holiday. So put on the mariachi and pour a margarita, here is your brief history lesson in where this celebratory day comes from.
While many think that Cinco de Mayo is Mexico’s Independence Day, which is actually on September 16th, May 5th commiserates Mexico’s unlikely victory against the French in 1862, a fight known as the Battle of Puebla. That’s why in Mexico, May 5th is often called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla or The Day of the Battle of Puebla.
The holiday moved into the United States during the first few years of the American Civil War as a way to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy. Today, however, Cinco de Mayo is mainly to recognize Mexican heritage and pride.
