Cinco de Mayo or the Fifth of May is a day that will be celebrated all over the world on this year’s Wednesday, May 5, 2010. In Mexico or wherever the culture of Mexico is celebrated — families, friends and neighbors gather to have a fiesta in honor of the event. This festival observes the 1862 victory of 4,000 ill-equipped Mexicans over 8,000 well-equipped French invaders. The battle known as La Batalla de Puebla that took place on...(you guessed it) May 5.
Today, all is forgiven, with fiestas planned in Mexico and in many communities around the world where Mexicans live. Even those who are not Mexican have little idea why they are coming to a Cinco de Mayo celebration are happy to commemorate the day and join in the fun and parties on May 5th. He in my little Island we usually go to old San Juan where the streets are packed with people celebrating. I have many funny drunk stories over this celebration, lol. Anyways, here we never lack of excuses to celebrate something… Looking forward to next year and see how NYC celebrates in comparison with us (my island).
Well in commemoration here is my favorite Margarita Recipe: Mango Margarita!!
