Fifth of May in Mexico

Cinco de Mayo is a festival of Mexican pride and heritage. This is an annual celebration that is held to remember the anniversary of an early victory achieved by the Mexicans from the French in the Battle of Puebla, May 5, 1962. Although this is not the actual defeat of the French, this is the start of the independence that the Mexicans finally got after five years.

Despite the clear background of the feast being directly connected to Mexican independence, the holiday is more meant to be celebrated to honor the culture, achievements, and experiences of all the people with Mexican background. Unlike other holidays, many Mexican businesses are open during this time to promote services and goods with the main attention being in Mexican drinks and music. On a more traditional tone, people celebrate this holiday with symbols like the Virgin de Guadalupe for spirituality. This is also the time to honor great people with Mexican origins in their roots especially those who have achieved fame and fortune all over the world.

Although Cinco de Mayo is not a federal holiday, it is celebrated in many parts of the US including Los Angeles, San Jose, San Francisco, Sacramento, San Antonio, El Paso, Albuquerque, Phoenix, and Denver because the most number of Mexicans and Mexican-Americans are in these cities. Music and dancing is rampant and could sometimes cause congestion of traffic on the streets.
