Why We Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in the US?

Some people may confuse Cinco de Mayo with Mexican Independence Day which is the popular holiday in Mexico. Although it sounds more like a Mexican holiday, Cinco de Mayo is much more known in the United States than in Mexico. Cinco de Mayo is original known as the celebration of the victory battle in which Mexican Army defeat the French Army with the support and help of the U.S.. It changes the relationship between the United States and Mexico.  Now, Cinco de Mayo has become a holiday for the Mexican descent who live in the U.S. to celebrate Mexican culture and for Americans to learn more about Mexican traditions and culture. People celebrate Cinco de Mayo by throwing Mexican fiesta parties, participating parades, and enjoying Mexican food.
