HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO! More on that in a sec, but first, it’s also Hug a Shed and Take a Selfie Day, International Midwives Day, Space Day, Tuba Day, Museum Lover’s Day, Nail Day, National Cartoonists Day, National Hoagie Day, National Silence the Shame Day, Red Dress Day, No Pants Day, Oyster Day, Revenge of the Fifth, School Lunch Hero Day and Totally Chipotle Day! Cinco De Mayo commemorates the Mexican victory at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, during the Franco-Mexican War. The day is a minor, regional holiday in Mexico, being mainly celebrated in the state of Puebla where the city of Puebla is the capital. Military parades, speeches, and reenactments of the battle are held there. It is also celebrated in Veracruz and Mexico City, but in many other places of Mexico, May 5th is no different than any other day. It is more widely celebrated in the United States and Canada, where it commemorates the battle, and celebrates Mexican culture and heritage almost like a Mexican version of St. Patrick’s Day!
