FELIZ CINCO DE MAYO!
Today, people all around the world are celebrating Cinco de Mayo, a day that honours Mexican culture and heritage.
Historically, this day commemorates the anniversary of Mexico’s victory over France at the Battle of Puebla, a significant moment during the Franco-Mexican War. Although it’s no longer a major celebration in most parts of Mexico, the state of Puebla hosts a grand parade that attracts thousands of locals.
Cinco de Mayo is Spanish for “Fifth of May”
Cinco de Mayo gained popularity in the United States in the 1960’s as a day to celebrate Mexican traditions. Restaurants and bars offer special deals on Mexican food and drinks. In recent years, London has been getting in on the action with festive cocktail offers and lively “fiesta” events happening throughout the city.
