Happy Cinco De Mayo!

AND…Happy TENTH Anniversary to Josh and Margie!! (our son and his wife)

Cinco de Mayo is celebrated each year on May 5th. It is primarily a celebration of Mexican culture by Mexican-Americans
living in the United States, although this is the anniversary of the
victory of the Mexican Army over the French at the Battle of Puebla in
1862. One interesting tidbit I found is that Cinco de Mayo is often mistaken by some Americans as being
Mexican Independence Day, which is actually observed on September 16.

Some of the yummy traditional Mexican food that people often enjoy on this day is enchiladas,
tamales, margaritas, and chips with a favorite salsa.
