Sombrero, Ponchos, Mexican Costumes and Serapes! Cinco de Mayo is a holiday that is celebrated in both the United States and in Mexico. On the 5th of May in 1862, the Mexican Army was an unlikely victor in the Battle of Puebla. On this day, a small army of Mexican forces was able to defeat the French in battle, which was a somewhat miraculous victory. This defeat was considered to be important, as it bolstered unity and patriotism amongst the people of Puebla and Mexico in general. In the United States today, Cinco de Mayo is a holiday that is popularly used to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride as well as to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy.
