Cinco de Mayo … Did You Know?

  1. Contrary to popular American (mis)belief, Cinco de Mayo doesn’t celebrate Mexican Independence Day (that’s September 16th). It celebrates Mexico’s victory over the French at the 1862 Battle of Puebla. It was a big deal because the Mexican army was severely out-gunned and had a lot less fighters compared to the wealthy, well-equipped French Army run by Napoleon III. Mexico won the battle and received a much needed morale boost, however they still lived under French rule for years.
  2. The victory showed the world that the French army wasn’t invincible. Later, this likely indirectly affected America’s Civil War as Napoleon decided NOT to supply the confederacy with guns, money and other support. Had his ego not been hit by the May 5th defeat, that decision could have been different.
  3. In Mexico, the holiday is primarily celebrated in the state of Puebla where the battle took place. It’s not actually a national holiday in Mexico. People in the U.S. tend to celebrate more than the wider Mexican population. 
  4. Activists in the 1960s U.S. Chicano Movement brought the holiday to more light to call attention to the racism they faced. This gave the holiday a big PR boost in the United States.
  5. Margaritas and Avocados: According to Numerator’s 2024 Holiday Preview survey of Americans, 39% said they’re going out to eat on Cinco de Mayo. 37% plan to gather with family and friends, and 63% plan on drinking (the majority of that consumption going to margaritas). The California Avocado Commission also reported that about 81 million pounds of avocados are consumed on Cinco de Mayo alone.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
