Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for "fifth of May") is a holiday held on May 5. It is celebrated nationwide in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla.The date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, and to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War. In the state of Puebla, the date is observed to commemorate 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. Contrary to widespread popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's Independence Day, the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico, which occurs on September 16th.


The French Larousse Gastronomique 1961 suggests: "Mayonnaise, in our view, is a popular corruption of moyeunaise, derived from the very old French word moyeu, which means yolk of egg."[7] The sauce may have been christened mayennaise after Charles de Lorraine, duke of Mayenne, because he took the time to finish his meal of chicken with cold sauce before being defeated in the Battle of Arques.

So this was the precedent for the Battle of Puebla, where the French forces again, choose lunch over preparedness; and why the name Cinco de Mayo is so appropriate. It really is Mayonnaise Day !!

So celebrate today's holiday with Hellmann's and bring out the best !!

OR: celebrate the revised French version known as


as celebrated in France, and immortalized by the

The Arc de Triomphe, Paris

A triumphal arch is a monumental structure
Thought to have been invented by the Romans, the triumphal arch was used to commemorate victorious generals or significant public events such as the founding of new colonies in The New World

So in proper observance of this day

You can still raise a glass of the famous french white burgandy - Puebla, Puebla
to celebrate Cinco de Mayanne

But that isn't a white burgundy from France !!!!

They are the main ingredients of _____________________ CINCO DE MAYO !!!!!!
