Gourmet Caterers wishes you a Happy Cinco de Mayo! What are you going to do to celebrate? How about some fresh chips and salsa? A refreshing Margarita? or treat your family and friends to Gourmet Caterers Taco/Tostada Bar or our Sizzling Steak or Chicken Fajitas? It all sounds good to me!
Cinco de Mayo is literally the fith of May. It is a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. It commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. It is celebrated primarily in the state of Puebla and in the United States. ”Cinco de Mayo is not a Mexican holiday—it is an American Civil War holiday, created spontaneously by Mexicans and Latinos living in California who supported the fragile cause of defending freedom and democracy during the first years of that bloody war between the states.” Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day, the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico.
Like most holidays the United States celebrates, Cinco de Mayo is an occasion to enjoy eating and drinking. Gourmet Caterers would like to help you celebrate. When you place your order, mention this blog and you will receive a complimentary appetizer of chips and salsa to enjoy with your guests.
Gourmet Caterers say Happy Cinco de Mayo to you and yours!
