It's a day of mourning for all the soldiers that lost their manhood because they weren't wearing pants, of course. :roll:

Yeah, it's not like defeating France is such a difficult thing. Kind of like winning the Special Olympics.

They certainly don't celibrate it much there. It's more of a regional celebration (but national holiday) in Puebla where the battle took place.
If memory serves, the Cinco de Mayo of today, here in the States, is a product of the American booze producers and sellers.

Now if we REALLY want to celebrate a Mexican Holiday we need to have a Decimosexto de Septiembre celibration! :pirate: :pirate: 8)

doesn't quite roll off the tongue like Cinco de Mayo... :roll:
