Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo (2017-05-05)

Cinco de Mayo, also "fifth of May" is a Mexican national holiday that takes place on the 5th of May.
Cinco de May is celebrated mostly in Puebla State and along USA-Mexico border and in some states which have a large Mexicans minority.
The day when Mexicans won a war for Pueblo is usually analogical to St. Patric's Day. During that day Mexicans are dancing to their traditional music - Mariaci, and they are drinking alcohol. In some regions celebrations last even all day.

Cinco de Mayo is commemorates the victory of Mexican army over French in 1862 during war over Pueblo. Nowadays, on the place where Mexicans were fighting, they put a monument of general Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín, who was leading Mexican's army during the battle.
Some people confuse Cinco de Mayo with Mexican's Independence Day, which is celebrated on 16th of September.
