Cinco De Mayo

Today is a holiday. A holiday marked in Mexico and southwest US States by parties, concerts and lots of great food.

What's the celebration about? No, it's not Mexican Independence Day. It's a celebration of the defeat of the French army by Mexican forces at the Battle of Pueblo. Yes, Mexico is also a part of the long and distinguished list of countries, which the French have been forced to bow to militarily. So, Viva Mexico!

Don't forget there is another important holiday coming up - French independence from the Germans is celebrated on June 6.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
