HURRA: Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in the ATL.


It’s Cinco de Mayo, and you’re chowing’ down on some tacos and empanadas when you realize that you have no idea what you’re celebrating. Don’t fear, now is your chance to learn so that you can avoid embarrassment in later years! It’s a common misconception that Cinco de Mayo is a commemoration of Mexico’s Independence Day, when in fact, it’s actually a remembrance of the Mexican Army’s victory over the French during the 1862  Battle of Puebla. So when you’re celebrating this important day in Mexico’s history, don’t forget what made it all happen.
