Happy Cinco de Mayo from Sunscape Resorts & Spas! How much do you know about this fun Mexican holiday? Though many people celebrate Cinco de Mayo in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, the history behind it is often confused with Mexican Independence Day, which actually falls on September 16th.
Instead, Cinco de Mayo occurred fifty years later and commemorates the Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. A small, poorly-armed group of about 4,500 Mexican soldiers led by General Ignacio Zaragoza defeated the French Army, then considered one of the most powerful in the world, which outnumbered them by nearly two to one. The battle only lasted four hours before the Mexican forces were victorious. Cinco de Mayo as we know it today originated in Mexican-American communities in the American West as a way to celebrate freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War.
Though the holiday is celebrated on a grander scale in the U.S. than Mexico, all public schools there are closed nationwide for Cinco de Mayo. Most Mexican Cinco de Mayo celebrations take place in the town of Puebla, where the battle occurred. The highlight is a parade featuring people dressed up as Mexican or French soldiers and sometimes there is even a reenactment of Mexico’s victory. Those portraying the Mexican soldiers walk armed with machetes and old-fashioned rifles while the French portrayers carry knapsacks with bottles of wine sticking out of them. The fiesta includes games, dances, mariachi music, colorful decorations, piñatas and fireworks.
Now that you’re up to snuff on Cinco de Mayo history, you’re ready to celebrate at Sunscape Resorts & Spas, where we’ll be going all out with traditional Mexican food, drinks, dancing, games and more. ¡Viva Mexico!
