Theme of this week: Cinco De Mayo!

So often in callenges of any kind we tend to forget that there are so many holidays and traditions that are not celebrated in our own countries. I would like this challenge to help educate and encourage us to think of others and their celebrations. 

There are many misconseptions of what Cinco De Mayo actually is, even I thought it had to do with the Mexican Independence. Here is an artical I found that can help you better understand what it is and well what it is not:  www.techtimes.com/articles/441….

Here is a quote from the above link incase you don't want to read the whole thing :) (Smile)

"Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Battle of Puebla, which took place in Mexico on May 5, 1862. The battle was part of the Franco-Mexican War, which began as a result of new Mexican President Benito Juarez defaulting on the country's loans from European governments. Britain, France and Spain sent troops to Veracruz to demand reimbursement. Britain and Spain eventually withdrew, but France continued its advance, hoping to carve out a territory of Mexico for itself. France sent 6,000 troops to attack the small town of Puebla de Los Angeles in east central Mexico. Juarez responded by sending 2,000 men. Though they were outnumbered, the Mexican army was victorious over the French. However, it would be another five years before the French would withdraw from Mexico completely."
