Cinco de Mayo Celebration

Cinco de Mayo

I think everyone living in the United States know about Cinco de Mayo. If you are a US citizen who does not know about this even, well, I guess that’s a real shame. Simply put, Cinco de Mayo is “5th of May”. This is a holiday that is celebrated by the whole region of Mexico. The main events are usually held in the state of Puebla. Some people who are not well-versed about Cinco de Mayo think that it is Mexico’s Independence Day celebration, but actually it is not. Cinco de Mayo memorializes the preliminary victory of the Mexican forces under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguin over the French forces in the battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

Cinco de Mayo is celebrated by dishing out different kinds of food, lively music and dancing. Various events and celebrations draw attention to Mexican culture. When you hear the music being played and see the kinds of dances being performed, there’s no doubt that it is of Mexican origin.

And aside from the US and Mexico, there are also some other countries that hold events connected to Cinco de Mayo. If you go to Vancouver you can witness the Cinco de Mayo Skydiving event, or in the Caribbean you’ll see the air guitar competition.
