Cinco de Mayo is a holiday held on May 5th that commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. It is celebrated primarily in the state of Puebla and in the United States. While Cinco de Mayo sees limited significance and celebration nationwide in Mexico, the date is observed nationwide in the United States and other locations around the world as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.

The Point: Last Wednesday was May 5th, Cinco de Mayo, so we “fiesta”-ed! Complete with fiesta salads, green chili and cheese tamales, and a couple of accessories so we were ready for photo ops!
