P.S. Do you know the origins of Cinco de Mayo? The holiday actually celebrates Mexico's victory over France in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Cinco de Mayo is actually a relatively minor holiday in Mexico and observed primarily in the state of Puebla. Since the 1960s, here in the Untied States it has become interpreted as a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage.
