Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican's annual celebration and it literally means fifth of May in Spanish. Wonder why Mexicans have to celebrate the day? On 5 May 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza, Mexican Army defeated well-equipped French army at the Battle of Puebla during the war time between Mexican and French. From that day, Mexican people, especially in the state of Puebla, celebrates the day by throwing a fun party Mexican style with delicious Mexican food, drinks, Latin music and parades. (Don't confuse this with Mexico's Independence Day on 16 September)
