It is Cinco de Mayo. A day that commemorates a battle in which Mexico defeated the French Army. Although the United States was not involved, the holiday has come to be equated with U.S. invasion that came 35 years later. At one time it was a day of celebration for both Mexico and America. It has morphed into a day of celebration by Mexicans mixed with a tinge of resentment over the U.S. invasion wherein we annexed Texas.
