Happy Cinco de Mayo

What is Cinco de Mayo? Well, for starters, it's the 5th of May. However there is significance to the date and the corresponding celebration.  It is a day for celebrating Mexican culture and history.

Cinco de Mayo is a regional holiday in parts of Mexico and most of the United States. While not an official holiday in the U.S., of course, it is the perfect excuse for a celebration! Cinco de Mayo is often mistaken for Mexican Independence Day, which is instead celebrated on September 16. Cinco de Mayo is simply a day of observance for Mexican heritage and pride. I know lots of people who hold Cinco de Mayo celebrations and parties. A few of them even recognize the heritage from which the day originates. Their gatherings will incorporate not only Mexican cocktails, but food and decorations as well.

Do you celebrate Cinco de Mayo? If you do celebrate Cinco de Mayo, what are some of your traditions?
