But FIRST- a little history- 5 de Mayo is not Mexican independence day- it actually marks the Battle of Puebla- where the Mexican army had a victory over France during the Franco-Mexican War in 1862. While it is a relatively minor holiday in Mexico – it has become a favorite American pastime to enjoy and celebrate Mexican culture. Let’s be sure to do it in a respectful and appreciative way… meaning; skip the sombreros and stick to the guac.
