Cinco de Mayo means "5th of May" in Spanish. party

The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862,
under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín.

In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken to be Mexico's Independence Day—the most important national holiday in Mexico—which is celebrated on September 16.

Now that you have had your history lesson for the day, you may return to your regularly scheduled programming........ shewinks.
