How you can be one hot tamale for Cinco De Mayo
Cinco De Mayo is an annual celebration that captures the festive spirit of Mexican fervor. When Mexico refused to pay interest to the country of France, the French invaded and tried to occupy Mexico. But the pride and determination of the Mexican people could not be defeated on May 5th, 1862. The Battle of Puebla is the historic site of this holiday victory where a festive parade is still held every year. Not to be confused with the Mexican Independence Day, this victory played an important role in Mexico’s independence.
The party goers and parade people of the town of Puebla have mock sword fights, play traditional games, and dance to mariachi music. There is lots of sounds and music, eating and drinking, and festive fashions (think big belt buckles, fancy boots, and rhinestone hats ) all take front stage for a celebration without limits.
You may not remember the Mexican victory over French soldiers at the Battle of Puebla…. heck, after all the food, parties, dancing, and good times, you might not remember this May 5th in the morning. But, you still want to look good right?
