I've literally been celebrating Cinco de Mayo my entire life... it's my birthday!
Many Americans believe that Cinco de Mayo is Mexico's Independence Day. The day actually commemorates the Mexican Army's victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Interestingly, this holiday is celebrated more widely in the United States (across the nation) than in Mexico (primarily in the state of Puebla).
Whether you're a history buff or not, parties are always fun! Start your day by making tissue paper flowers to brighten your home. Sip on fruit water while making up a batch of Homemade Sc'alsa. Enjoy a dinner full of Mexican flavor followed by dessert. Finally, snuggle up on the couch and watch the family movie Coco before finally hitting the hay, er, vaya al sueño!
