Today is Cinco de Mayo. Which basically translates as May 5 in English. It’s an annual celebration of all things Mexican commemorated around the word but mainly in the United States. Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

Cinco de Mayo actually commemorates the Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Pueblo on May 5, 1862. It’s not a national holiday in Mexico and, despite some claims, isn’t Mexico’s Independence Day, that occurring on September 16 every year.

But so what. Who needs a reason to eat fajitas, enchilados, burritos, and to drink Sol, Corona, and tequila? Any excuse will do me, as that’s a good night right there.

As a Brit, I’m sure I’m in the minority in commemorating Cinco de Mayo. However, that fact that it celebrates a French military defeat is good enough reason to do so. I kid, of course.
