Cinco de Mayo

I was thinking this morning that Wednesday will be Cinco de Mayo. Then I thought, "OK, good. But what is Cinco de Mayo?"

A quick trip to Wikipedia gave me the answer, which I am charmed to share with you.

Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for "fifth of May") is a holiday celebrated in the United States and primarily limited to the state of Puebla in Mexico.[1][2] The holiday commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of Mexican General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín.[3][4]

You’re welcome.
