This is the kind of mural that melds the pride of Mexico and America and makes every day the fifth of May. Surprisingly, Cinco de Mayo is not an obligatory federal holiday down in Mexico. The springtime celebration that we have come to know here in Denver commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces in the Battle of Puebla (Mexico) on May 5, 1862. The holiday has blossomed into a five-day festival that provides Mexicans and Americans an opportunity to come together as friends to share their mutual dislike of the French.
