Tomorrow Cinco de Mayo is celebrated in both Mexico and the United States, commemorating the victory of the The Day of the Battle of Puebla, where the Mexican Army defeated the French forces on May 5th, 1862. We recognize Cinco de Mayo in the U.S. as a day of Mexican heritage and pride. Tomorrow our Mexican-American friends will be observing the day with fun festivals, music, food and traditional dress.
There is no particular food used to celebrate the day, but please check out our kid friendly chicken enchilada recipe in our new Recipe Tab – it’s one of our favorites!
And of course, your kids can use their Spanish Early Lingo DVDs to impress people with their knowledge of Spanish!
