Cinco de mayo - though it’s late but we should

Despite the fact that Cinco de mayo originated from Mexico, the festival is celebrated in many parts of the world, including the United States of America. It is a Mexican cultural phenomenon that is widely celebrated in the United States of America, it may be an ancient or late practice but it is still relevant in modern times for several reasons.

First of all, most people believe Cinco d mayo represents the celebration of Mexican independence, but that is a wrong notion, the festival actually is a celebration of the failed French invasion of the state of Mexico especially during the period of financial ruins that caused Mexico to default in the repayment of its debt to several European countries, including France. During the 1862 attack of the French people by Mexicans, the president of Mexico was able to force the French armies to retreat with his army of about 2000 mighty warriors. This battle was a significant victory in the history of Mexicans and it is worth celebrating every year.

Mexicans also celebrate Cinco de mayo in some states of the USA, because of the help that the American government rendered when the Mexican nation was besieged. To this day, Cinco de Mayo remains a Federal holiday that is worth celebrating by Mexicans all across the world. The celebration is characterized by a wide range of dance styles, traditional Mexican costumes as well as great local and international music, not to mention the delicious foods and drinks.
