Cinco de Mayo is a beloved holiday celebrated annually on May 5th in the United States, but do we really know what we’re celebrating? In this blog, we’ll take a deep dive into the history of Cinco de Mayo, how it became a significant holiday in the US, and why we at SOHO TACO want to wish everyone a fun, safe, and enjoyable one.

Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day, which is celebrated on September 16th. Rather, it commemorates the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, when a small, ill-equipped Mexican army defeated the powerful French forces that had invaded Mexico. The French army, led by Napoleon III, was attempting to take over Mexico and install a French monarch. The victory at the Battle of Puebla was a turning point in the French-Mexican War, and it inspired the Mexican people to continue fighting for their independence.

While Cinco de Mayo is a significant date in Mexican history, it wasn’t until the 1960s and 70s that it became a widely celebrated holiday in the United States. The Chicano movement, a civil rights movement that fought for Mexican-American empowerment and cultural preservation, played a significant role in bringing attention to the holiday. The movement’s leaders saw Cinco de Mayo as a way to celebrate and honor their heritage, and to spread awareness of the contributions that Mexican-Americans have made to American culture.

Today, Cinco de Mayo is celebrated across the United States, with parades, parties, and cultural events taking place in cities and towns all over the country. The holiday has become a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, and it’s an opportunity for people of all backgrounds to come together and enjoy traditional Mexican food, music, and dance.
