Ways to Celebrate Cinco De Mayo

Cinco de Mayo (the fifth of May) is a celebration to commemorate the Mexican’s army’s victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Here are a couple of ways to celebrate Cinco de Mayo either in the office or at home:

  1. Play some Mexican music and dance.
  2. Make yummy Mexican food: tacos, fajitas, guacamole, chips and salsa, and margaritas.
  3. Decorate with Mexican style decor for a party.
  4. Make a pinata. Check out our Pinterest board for DIY pinata ideas.
