Cinco de Mayo - May 5

Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Battle of Puebla, when the Mexican army defeated the French army in 1862.  It is celebrated mostly in the United States, where it is used as an excuse to indulge in Mexican food (tacos, enchiladas, tamales, etc).  You can read more about the holiday here:
