Cinco de Mayo May 05, 2016 15:07

Hi, for May´s calendar page, I choose the colorful  "Cinco de Mayo" file from 
ScrappyDew´s collections
 
"Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). A relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations. Cinco de Mayo traditions include parades, mariachi music performances and street festivals in cities and towns across Mexico and the United States." (taken from History)
 


Feliz 5 de mayo a los amigos mexicanos!!!
