As most people who live in the U.S. know, today is a very famous Mexican celebration going on in many cities that have a high percentage of Hispanic population.
But what happens today in Mexico? Well, the most important thing that happens is that there was no school today. What else? Well, mmmm, nothing. Really, nothing. Except maybe in the city of Puebla, where the Batalla de Puebla was fought. And maybe some Northern states which have been influenced by the celebration of Mexicans in the U.S. This was a battle fought against the French invading forces, in which Mexico won. This celebration has nothing to do with Mexico's Independence. So there is really no 5 de mayo post as such. Sorry, nada!
But I will post some more photos taken in Dolores Hidalgo. And if you live in the U.S. and saw some kind of celebration in your city, I'd love to hear about it!
