Did you know:

  • Cinco de Mayo celebrates the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War in 1862. Their victory was considered unlikely because Mexico had far fewer soldiers than France.
  • While Cinco de Mayo is not a federal holiday in Mexico, the city of Puebla celebrates with parades, and people dress up as French and Mexican soldiers. In America, the day is largely seen as a celebration of Mexican culture.
  • President Franklin Roosevelt helped popularize the holiday in America after he enacted the “Good Neighbor Policy” to improve the United States’ relationship with Latin Countries.
