Here at Kids Playce, we had a very HAPPY Cinco De Mayo Day! It was a day of celebration and learning all about this special day!
Many people mistaken Cinco De Mayo as Mexican Independence. Truth be told, in current times Cinco De Mayo is celebrated more in the US than it is in Mexico. This day is a Mexican holiday celebrating the Battle of Puebla, which took place on May 5, 1862. France sent a massive army to invade Mexico as they wanted to collect war debts. The French was much larger, better trained and better equipped than the Mexican army. However, against all logic, the Mexicans won a huge victory, which is celebrated on this day!
