I'm good thanks for asking. Did you know that today is Cinco de Mayo?
Hola! How are you?
Cinco de Mayo is a celebration to celebrate the people of Pueblo defeating France.
But why were they fighting France in the first place?
No. What is Cinco de Mayo?
The French attacked the city of Pueblo with troops three times the size of Puebla’s.
Well, after the American/Mexican War, Mexico was in great Debt to France and Great Britain and they refused to pay for two years because they didn’t have the money.
Ooooh what happened next?
Nope. They were actually farmers. That’s why Cinco de Mayo is a holiday, because they beat the French with a much smaller, much less experienced army.
So that was the end of the war?
But Puebla’s troops were trained, right?
No. The French came back eventually, and took over the city, but after a few years, the people of Puebla fought with the help of the Americans and took back their city because France didn’t want issues with America.
So now everyone in Mexico celebrated Cinco de Mayo?
Actually, only the people of Puebla celebrate it and Americans.
Wow, I never knew that. Thanks for telling me. Adios!
