HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO!!!! A time honored celebration to DRINK CORONA! YEEE HAAAA ! I have celebrated the past few years and have had a lot of fun with it, but what the hell is it? I think just about every year I do a search for the History Cinco de Mayo! I will be on the down low this year and just celebrating at home!
Check it out: The 5th of May is not Mexican Independence Day, but it should be! And Cinco de Mayo is not an American holiday, but it should be. Mexico declared its independence from mother Spain on midnight, the 15th of September, 1810. And it took 11 years before the first Spanish soldiers were told and forced to leave Mexico.
So, why Cinco de Mayo? And why should Americans savor this day as well? Because 4,000 Mexican soldiers smashed the French and traitor Mexican army of 8,000 at Puebla, Mexico, 100 miles east of Mexico City on the morning of May 5, 1862.
