Feliz Cinco de Mayo!
For those of you unfamiliar with the Mexican holiday Cinco de Mayo or literally, “five of May”, it is a date observed to commemorate the Mexican’s army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on the May 5, 1862.
It was an excellent example of a David V. Goliath type scene in which the Mexicans defeated a much better-equipped French army whose record went untarnished for almost 50 years. And after that, no country in the Americas was subsequently invaded by any other European military force.
And why should you care I hear you say? Well I have always liked this piece of history as it reminds us that it is possible to be triumphant, even when the odds are stacked against you. It’s no wonder this glorious date has taken on significance far wider than Mexico. You can find Cinco de Mayo celebrations all over the world.
