Cinco de Mayo
Most people seem to think that Cinco de Mayo is Mexican Independence Day, but in fact it commemorates the Mexican victory over the French in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. You see, while the US had its hands full with the Civil War, France invaded Mexico. The Battle of Puebla was a key Mexican Victory, and the date is commemorated to this day. So, today would be a great day for you to cook up some authentic Mexican Food.
