Cinco de Mayo is annually observed on May 5 as a celebration of Mexico’s victory over France in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Frankly, it’s more widely celebrated in the United States than it is in Mexico, but these days, we’re all about celebrating anything we can! PLUS, it falls on a Tuesday this year. Cinco de Mayo AND Taco Tuesday?! Fiesta time!
