Happy Cinco De Mayo Everyone!

I hope your having a great day and will have an even better night! So what is Cinco De Mayo? Well, many people think it is the Mexican Independence Day but that is actually on September 16. Cinco De Mayo celebrates Mexico’s triumph over the French at the Battle of Puebla. Which was a big deal, the French had not lost in a long time.

So here we are! Let’s Fiesta then Siesta!
