Sonora Smart Dodd started the holiday to honor her father who was a single father who raised 6 children.

Many enjoy the regalia of Cinco De Mayo, heading out for some frozen drinks and tacos, but do you know the history behind the date and its significance? Cinco de Mayo is an annual celebration of The Mexican’s Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. This victory improved the morale for Mexican’s as their army was significantly smaller than the French. Celebrations in Mexico include parades, food, music, folkloric dancing and battle reenactments.
The celebration of Cinco De Mayo came to the United States in California in 1863 and has gained popularity in the United States starting in the 1980’s as it became a holiday with beer sales inline with Super Bowl Sunday. Cinco De Mayo is not Mexican Independence as it is sometimes called, that day is on September 16thwhich is the day that the war of Mexican Independence from Spain was initiated.
