While many think Cinco de Mayo is Mexico’s Independence Day, what Cinco de Mayo celebrates is the Mexican victory at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. Despite being a significant event in the USA, where it is about commemorating Mexican culture and heritage, Cinco de Mayo is not considered a national holiday in Mexico.
Cinco de Mayo does not begin without guacamole. It is the perfect appetizer to get the party started since it takes no time to make and is hard to resist.
