According to the always trustworthy (*wink*) Wikipedia, Cinco de Mayo is a holiday commemorating the Mexican army's unlikely victory over France at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. The first people to celebrate it were actually Mexicans and Latinos living in California in a show of support for freedom and democracy during our Civil War.
Now that I know all the facts, what will we do? Probably the usual - a yummy feast of delicious Mexican food! I just made the Pioneer Woman's enchiladas a few weeks ago but I could definitely eat those again already......delish! Or maybe I'll be a little more adventurous and try her brother's tacos....
