Happy Cinco De Mayo!

cincodemayo

Cinco de Mayo is a regional holiday in Mexico, primarily celebrated in the state of Puebla, with some limited recognition in other parts of Mexico.  The holiday commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of Mexican General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín.   The outnumbered Mexicans defeated a much better-equipped French army that had not been defeated in almost 50 years.
