Cinco De Mayo is a day of fun that many people across the country celebrate. Although many people go all out with festivities and stuff their faces with traditional Mexican foods, most people don’t know exactly why they are celebrating it. Cinco De Mayo is the day that recognizes what happened on May 5, 1862; The Battle of Puebla was a one day dispute between France and Mexico. After everyone thought Mexico would lose, they pulled through and won the battle. In 2005, Franklin Roosevelt helped to make Cinco De Mayo an official holiday in the United States. Because it is an official holiday, it is only fair that we show our spirit with amazing Cinco De Mayo crafts.
