    Diana- Muchas gracias para su información. I heard the state of Puebla is the only state that celebrates Cinco de Mayo, which is logical. Also, for our members, if you want to do some homework about el grito de indepenencia 15-16 " childo or muy padre( que padre)( cool)". I hope to visit there in Septiembre 2014 for el día independencia. cuidate, ricardo.

    To answer your question about Cinco de Mayo...Cinco de Mayo marks a date of a battle when the war between Mexico and the French turned against the French It was the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. A year later the French won a major battle against Mexico. But the significance of the Battle of Puebla is that the Mexican army was only half the size of the French and not well-trained. So, it was unlikely that they would win...but they did and this victory sparked Mexican pride and bolstered resistance. So much so that within 4 years the French were driven out with the execution of French Emperor Maximillian in Mexico City. Since the Battle of Pueblo no country in the Americas has subsequently been invaded by any other European military force.

    Cinco de Mayo is not a national holiday in Mexico.
