It actually honours Mexico’s victory over the French in the Battle of Puebla.
But in America, it’s a chance to dive into Mexican culture.
The exact reason I don't know but it’s a drinking holiday in the United States.
Cinco De Mayo was popular among Mexican-Americans in the 1960s-70s, but it soon became commercialized in the U.S.
A day earmarked for enjoying the wealth of Mexican food and drink in Houston.
Bars and restaurants all over town have celebrations and specials planned that are sure to set a festive mood.
The Cinco de Mayo celebration gives the Mexican restaurant industry a financial boost.
If you like parties or celebrations then this is the best day to come out and celebrate your life without any tension.
