Celebrate Cinco De Mayo
Cinco de Mayo, which is Spanish for “Fifth of May”, is an annual celebration many look forward to! Traditionally, it was observed to commemorate the Mexican’s army victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Celebrated more so in the United States than Mexico, Cinco De Mayo has become associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture.
Let’s continue to honor this day and our Mexican friends, family and co-workers with a special treat!
