Cinco de Mayo is a great reason to throw a party . But, what are we celebrating? In all honesty, prior to this post, I thought that Cinco de Mayo was the Mexican equivalent of the USA’s 4th of July . As it turns out, that is not true! I probably learned about it in high school history, but that was a few years ago (right, just a few!) and it is just not one of those things that stayed near the front of the fractured filing cabinet in my head that is supposed to be my brain.
