    Cinco de Mayo is when the world celebrates the invention of the Margarita.

    Mexican Independence Day is September 16th.

    The 5th of May is the anniversary of the Puebla battle, where the Mexican army defeated the French invaders (1862 - Surprising since the French army was larger and better equiped)... for some reason the date has become in the U.S. sort of a celebration of 'Mexican-hood' (sic)

    And before that? He at one point advanced so close to Amsterdam that William of Orange cut the dikes so it wouldn't be taken.
