Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Funny how on certain holidays, us as Americans become whatever nationality that holiday! I just wanted to share some fun facts about "Cinco de Mayo" (May 5th), is not to be confused for the Mexican Independence Day. Cinco de Mayo is a voluntarily observed holiday that commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. It is celebrated primarily in the state of Puebla and in the United States. While Cinco de Mayo has limited significance nationwide in Mexico, the date is observed in the United States and other locations around the world as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's Independence Day, the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico.
With that said, enjoy the day....especially Happy Hour since most Americans will be Mexicans for the day!
