Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867).  This day is celebrated because Mexican people want to remember when they gained their independence.  Mexican people should celebrate this holiday because it is an important holiday for their country that they live in or have come from.  I think Cinco de Mayo maybe should become a national holiday here in the U.S. because there are so many Mexican or Hispanic people who live here.
