Thousands of people will be relishing in all things Mexican this weekend as countries around the world celebrate Cinco de Mayo. The Mexican holiday commemorates the date of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War.
Today, whilst it’s a relatively minor occasion in Mexico, in the US, Cinco de Mayo is a large, joyous celebration of Mexican culture and heritage. Cinco de Mayo literally translates to “Fifth of May,” so is celebrated on this date every year to mark the Battle of Puebla.
