Cinco de Mayo // Lessons in Mexican Culture + Food

Did you know that Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day (That’s September 16), and also isn’t widely celebrated in Mexico? Cinco de Mayo, also known as the Battle of Puebla Day, commemorates the date of the Mexican army’s May 5, 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War.

We thought it would be fun to learn a little about Mexican culture today. Maggie Morales, who is part of our Cornerstone family, has put together a video with a lesson on Mexican art and culture and instructions on how to make tostadas. We hope you enjoy it!
