Feliz Cinco de Mayo

Hola, for today, Les Petits Plaisirs will be going Spanish and acknowledging Los Placeres Pequeños. (Sorry Mes Amis)

For most Americans, Cinco de Mayo is probably just another excuse to party (à la Saint Patty's Day). Cinco de Drunko, if you will.

Because it is so often shrouded in mariachi music and tequila, I was interested to know more about the true roots of this holiday, which is often celebrated to a greater extent by Chicanos in the states than in Mexico.

Via UCLA, here's a little history of
Cinco de Mayo, a day that marks the defeat of the French army in Mexico.

A few images to get you in a festive spirit:
