I have to be completely honest…I Googled Cinco de Mayo because I wasn’t quite sure if it was definitely Mexico’s Independence Day or not. Here is the definition Wikipedia so kindly generated…
“Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “fifth of May”) is a celebration held on May 5. It is celebrated in the United States and in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla, where the holiday is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla).
It originated with Mexican-American communities in the American West as a way to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War, and today the date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. In the state of Puebla, the date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is generally mistaken to be Mexico’s Independence Day—the most important national holiday in Mexico, celebrated on September 16—but it is not.”
Here’s a good article explaining Cinco de Mayo further…and a list of the Top 10 Mexican Restaurants in the U.S. Mexican food is probably my very favorite ethnic food! I would love to try out all of these places one day!

I probably won’t be keeping this mani on for too long because I might be heading into the hospital to have my baby! I’m just waiting to hear back from the OB Doctor on some test results. I’ll keep you posted! I guess if I do have to have an emergency induction my manicure will be the last thing on my mind! 🙂
Thanks for reading! If you eat some amazing Mexican food, think of me! 🙂
