Cinco de Mayo: Celebrate with a Donation to a Top-Rated Hispanic & Latin American Charity Today!
It is a
popular misconception that Cinco de Mayo celebrates Mexican Independence Day.
Instead, it honors a single battle during the Franco-Mexican War. Cinco de
Mayo, or May 5th, is the holiday that celebrates the Mexican army’s
victory over France at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
Mayo has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage.
