Cinco de Mayo (which means "Fifth of May" in English) is a holiday celebrated in Mexico and many parts of the United States of America. Cinco de Mayo commemorates the victory of the Mexican army over the invading French army in the Battle of Puebla, which took place on May 5, 1862. The Mexican army was headed by General Ignacio Zaragoza.

Cinco de Mayo is NOT the same as Mexico's Independence Day (Mexico's Independence Day celebrates Mexico's independence from Spain in 1821, and is held on September 16).
