Happy 5 de Mayo! Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day as a lot of people seem to believe. Although it's not Independence Day it is now used as a day to celebrate Mexican heritage, food and customs.

In America, the holiday is celebrated across the country because it is believed to be Mexico’s Independence Day, but if you dig in a little deeper into your history books, you will find out that this battle kept the French from supplying the Confederate Army with more weapons and ammunition, which signified a win-win for both U.S. and Mexico.
