Why Do We Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in the United States?
In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is widely interpreted as a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with substantial Mexican-American populations.
Chicano activists raised awareness of the holiday in the 1960s, in part because they identified with the victory of indigenous Mexicans (such as Juárez) over European invaders during the Battle of Puebla.
May 5th mark the occasion with parades, parties, mariachi music, Mexican folk dancing, and traditional foods such as tacos and mole poblano. Some of the largest yearly festivals are held in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Houston.
This year’s celebrations, of course, will be an at-home event for you and your immediate family. We have gathered up some of our most popular recipes for you to create and enjoy in your very own kitchen. Crank up the music and celebrate Cinco de Mayo with wonderful flavors all while enjoying a day home in your PJs.
