    It’s not celebrated in Mexico, so why do we do it?

    Excuse to drink. Like the Irish get St. Patrick’s Day.

    But the Germans get a whole MONTH, Oktoberfest.

    It is celebrated in some parts of Mexico. Mexican Independence Day is celebrated nationwide.

    The Texicans certainly celebrated it before the gringos tossed them out after voiding their property ownership papers.

    It is a legal holiday in the state of Puebla where the battle actually took place.

    That, and today, would probably get him suspended from our knee-jerk-reaction, overly PC schools we have now.

    It was popularized to rally the Americans of Mexican descent against the Southern traitors during the Civil War.

    The Mexicans won the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, in one of the very first actions of the French invasion, and in Puebla it is still celebrated. Ironically, the French themselves still commemorate the Battle of Camaron, which took place almost exactly a year later, on April 30, 1863. The Mexicans won that battle too, but the French Foreign Legion earned its near-legendary reputation for how fiercely they fought, almost to the last man.
