Cinco de Mayo (which translates to "May 5th") is celebrated in some parts of Mexico and in much of the United States. It is a celebration of Mexican culture and pride and commemorates the first victory of Mexican forces over French forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. This victory delayed the French invasion of Mexico City, but a year later, the French occupied Mexico. The French were eventually defeated and expelled in 1867.
