Cinco de Mayo: What it is and what it is not

Shown, that is.

And when it comes to Cinco de Mayo – the annual fiesta that gives the Americans an excuse to upload to tacos and margaritas – people ask many of them.

Cinco = 5th Mayo = May. So, May 5th.

Cinco de Mayo.

At Cinco de Mayo.

* Sigh. At Cinco de Mayo.

We already have this.

There was no Cinco de Mayo war.

The holiday celebrates Mexico's victory over France in the Battle of Puebla May 5, 1862. It was a relatively small battle – the French regained Puebla a year later – but a symbolic one because a small Mexican army defeated a larger occupying force. In 1
867, Mexican troops had driven France from the country.

Many Americans assume Cinco de Mayo is Mexico's Independence Day. It is not. That holiday falls on September 16 and celebrates Grito de Dolores, a priest's ring of a church bell in the town of Dolores in 1810, which triggered Mexico's independence war from Spain.

No. Día de Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a three-day holiday where families all over Mexico gather to remember deceased friends and family members. It is usually held from October 31 to November 2.

No matter where you want it to be. If your festival is strong, Cinco de Mayo can even be a state of mind.

But spoken literally … probably your neighborly.

And our absolute favorite question. ..

We give up.
