HHGutt sez Happy Cinco de Mayo



Hello. Me llamo HHGutt and I was heched en México. Today I'm going to teach you the true meaning of Cinco de Mayo. Sure Méxicans enjoy our cerveza but this day means so mucho más.

The holiday of Cinco De Mayo, The 5th of May, commemorates the victory of the Mexican militia over the French army at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862. It is primarily a regional holiday celebrated in the Mexican state capital city of Puebla and throughout the state of Puebla, with some limited recognition in other parts of Mexico, and especially in U.S. cities with a significant Mexican population. It is not, as many people think, Mexico's Independence Day, which is actually September 16. (Read more at Mexonline.com)

Here’s a tune that you might want to baila la rumba to.
