Cinco de Mayo (Churros) is an annual event, held from the second week of May until the second week of June in many parts of Mexico. The day associated with Cinco de Mayo, is traditionally associated with food, especially Mexican food. Cinco de Mayo originated in Mexico and was first celebrated with a fiesta of sorts, to celebrate a defeat of French at the Battle of Puebla. It is also referred to as the Battle of Puebla Day, after the Spanish victory.
Since its beginning, Cinco de Mayo has become internationally recognized for the celebrations that accompany this Mexican holiday. The reason for this is that Cinco de Mayo has always been seen as a military victory for Mexico and Mexican-American soldiers, thus the reason for the celebration with food. Other countries also have taken note of this fact and celebrate Cinco de Mayo with great feasts, parades and parties. Some countries like Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom even have their own version of Cinco de Mayo celebrations.
One of the largest celebrations which take place on this Mexican Independence Day is Mexico City, where you will find massive parades. The parade down the streets of Mexico City is often marbled with red and white for the color of Mexican Independence. The reason for this is to remember the sacrifice that many Mexican soldiers made for the freedom of Mexico. During this same parade, you will find many different organizations that are there to observe this day, and they also have their own traditions associated with these parades.
Another major celebration which takes place around the globe on Cinco de Mayo (in the Western Hemisphere) is that of St. Patrick’s Day. Many people in the United States celebrate this day with green beer and other alcohol drinks, but in Mexico this holiday is taken very seriously and celebrated in a whole different way. Many people believe that on this day, many good things occurred when Jesus Christ was born in the holy land of Mexico. The religious significance of this event and the way in which many of the Mexican people celebrate this day, cannot be overlooked when it comes to comparing Cinco de Mayo to the birth of Christ.

The manner in which Cinco de Mayo has been celebrated around the world is a very colorful one. Mexico celebrates this event much differently than other countries do. They celebrate it with a number of celebrations and activities which have strong religious meaning to the Mexican people. The way in which they commemorate the event has a lot to do with their heritage and beliefs, but it also has much to do with the nature of their country. Mexico celebrates Mexican food, traditions, and celebrations in such an elegant and classy manner. It takes a lot of time and preparation to properly do this, yet it looks amazing when it is done.
The reason why Mexico celebrates Cinco de Mayo this way has a lot to do with the history of this event itself. Cinco de Mayo originated out of Mexico’s history of conflict and revolution. For several years, the United States of America and other countries have celebrated this particular event in a manner that was similar to Mexico. 50 years ago, Mexico did not yet have as much of an impact on the rest of the world as they have today, yet they were celebrating Cinco de Mayo every year with much of the same fervor that we do today.
