Cinco de Mayo

Today is the fifth of May which is the date of the Mexican holiday commemorating the Mexican army's victory over the French in the battle of Puebla in 1862. In the United States it's a date to celebrate the culture and experiences of Americans of Mexican ancestry. Like most holidays, it's a reason for a celebration and Mexican parties are fun, bring out the good food and drink. Latin food is very common in my house and today will be like any other day with some kind of tortilla wrapped food and maybe a Mexican beer or two. OK two for sure.
