Cinco de Mayo
Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over France at the Battle of Puebla. Today, in the United States, it is also a day to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride. You may be surprised to learn that Cinco de Mayo is a bigger holiday in the United States than it is in Mexico. Still, it is an excellent opportunity to embrace a different culture. While many people celebrate by eating Mexican food, there are other ways to make the holiday special.
This is a great time to be creative and find fun activities for you and your family to do at home. You can have a party that includes a taco bar, listen to Mexican music, make maracas or even construct a piñata. You can also find books and research the history behind the holiday.
