Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862. It is not the same as Mexican Independence Day.
In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is celebrated more than in Mexico, thanks to advertising campaigns by beer and wine companies. As a result, Cinco de Mayo generates beer sales on par with the Super Bowl.
