Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone!
Saddle up everyone, you’re about to get a history lesson!
Some of you may know but more still do not, but Cinco de Mayo is a special day for people of Mexican descent. Now some people think that this is a celebration of Mexican independence, in all actuality it is not.
Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of a very special victory during the Franco-Mexican war back in 1862.
6,000 well-fortified and highly trained French soldiers set out to attack the small town of Puebla de Los Angeles. 2,000 of the Mexican people, most of whom were unskilled in the arts of advanced combat, banded together to defend the town. On May 5th 1862 the battle began. From daybreak to dusk both sides fought a fierce battle and at the end of that day the French were forced to retreat.
Now though this battle was not strategically important to the overall war effort, it became a rallying cry and a testament to the dedication and strength of the Mexican people. Today, we hold Cinco de Mayo as a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage. And we’ve decided to have a little contest to celebrate!
