I don’t speak much Spanish, but I know that today is Cinco de Mayo and it is all things Mexican around here. All the Mexican restaurants are having fiestas and specials – this is a big party day!

“Cinco de Mayo” translates to the Fifth of May and is not really Mexico’s Independence Day. It is a celebration of the defeat of the French in 1862, at the Battle of Puebla. The most important national holiday in Mexico, their Independence Day, is on September 16th.
