It’s Cinco de Mayo and you know what that means; It’s another country’s holiday where we can drink! Woo hoo!
Here is an excerpt on the history of the holiday:
The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken to be Mexico’s Independence Day—the most important national holiday in Mexico—which is celebrated on September 16.
