In re: Cinco de Mayo

So while a few of us have celebrated Cinco de Mayo from time to time, maybe had the occasional Margarita and some tacos?  Many of us forget what the holiday is anyway, probably most people would guess that it is Mexican independence, it is not, but since I couldn’t remember what it was (aside from being the Mexican equivalent to St. Patricks day) I looked it up on Wikipedia and learned that:

“The holiday commemorates an initial victory of Mexican forces led by General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín over French forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. The date is observed in the United States and other locations around the world as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.”

Okay, well with the learning part of the day over, guess its back to the Margaritas…
