Growing up in Connecticut, I didn’t know what Cinco De Mayo was or meant for many years. But when I moved to California to go to college I quickly learned that May 5 was a big party day, especially when it fell on a weekend. However, I still didn’t know what the celebration was for until just now, when I looked it up on Wikipedia: “Cinco De Mayo is an annual celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.”
One thing I know for sure is that Cinco De Mayo is either getting more popular in America or there are Mexican restaurants popping up around the world like never before. Either way, if you want to impress your friends on May 5, you should download the Radio Mexico Live app. It’s free and it allows users to listen to the best Mexico radio stations live online. There are over 42 radio stations on the app and the interface is easy to use. It’s available on both Android and iOS.
