May has quite a few noteworthy Holidays and “National” days. From Cinco De Mayo to Memorial Day, May surely is a jam-packed month filled with celebrating, remembering, barbecuing, spending time with family and having fun!
Cinco De Mayo (May 5th):
- Cinco de Mayo 2020 is a celebration that is observed, yearly, on May 5. It is a day that commemorates the Mexican army’s victory, on May 5, 1862, over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). In the United States Cinco de Mayo 2020 has become associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture but should not be confused with Mexico’s Independence Day which is celebrated on September 16.
