In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is a day to celebrate with Mexican snacks and delicious margari-tas. The celebration of Cinco de Mayo isn't a holiday in all of Mexico, but in the city of Puebla it's a big deal because it commemorates the victory of the Mexican army over the French, in an event known as the Battle of Puebla. It is, without a doubt, an interesting historical event and the perfect excuse to indulge in delicious tacos.
