Cinco de Mayo  (May 5th): This day Mexicans commemorate winning the famous battle of Puebla over the French and this Mexican holiday is probably the most widely celebrated day in the US.  We have great Cinco de Mayo outfit ideas.

Mexico's Independence Day is on September 16th, 1910.  Mexicans celebrate "El Grito" by the priest Miguel Hidalgo calling locals to raise weapons and fight for independence from Spain.
