The History Behind Cinco de Mayo

Contrary to what some people believe, Cinco de Mayo isn’t Mexico’s Independence Day - which is actually celebrated on September 16. Cinco de Mayo marks the Battle of Puebla, which took place on May 5, 1862. As part of the French invasion, the battle ended with a highly unlikely victory for the Mexican army.

Despite facing a significant disadvantage in both experience and military equipment, while also being outnumbered 2 to 1, the Mexican army successfully drove off the French troops. The invaders ultimately regrouped and ultimately captured Mexico City, but the victory at Puebla is still remembered until this day.

While Cinco de Mayo celebrations are extremely popular in Puebla for obvious reasons, that’s not exactly the case for the rest of the country, and the date isn’t actually considered a national holiday. In fact, Cinco de Mayo celebrations are actually far more popular in the US than in Mexico!

But why did Cinco de Mayo grow into such a big event in the US? Sometime after the Battle of Puebla, the news reached the Mexican miners in California, who then went on to party and commemorate the historic victory over the French troops. Since then, the celebrations have become a tradition among the Mexican community in California.

Over the years, Cinco de Mayo traditions spread beyond California, initially among the Mexican-American population in other states. Then, in the 1980s, beer companies created marketing campaigns for Cinco de Mayo, which in turn led to nationwide popularity. Now, the 5th of May is also a date to celebrate Mexican culture not only in the US but also around the world.

Speaking of beer, this has also become a Cinco de Mayo trademark. The holiday’s beer sales have surpassed St. Patrick’s Day, putting them on par with the Super Bowl. How much beer are we talking about? Super Bowl beer sales rake some $1.2 billion every year - well over 325.5 million gallons! Yes, we are talking about a lot of beer.
