¡Cinco de Mayo!

It's finally that time of the year! Time to celebrate "Cinco de Mayo"! Many people erroneously think that Cinco de Mayo is México's Independence Day but that is incorrect! Cinco de Mayo celebrates a famous victory when the underdog Mexican soldiers defeated the French soldiers in the "Battle of Puebla" on May 5th, 1862. Even though this is technically a Mexican holiday, it is celebrated more in the United States than it is in México! Be sure to watch my teaching video to find out how many avocados are eaten on Cinco de Mayo!
