Cinco de Mayo is part of our proud Chihuahua heritage!!!

Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for "fifth of May") is a celebration held on May 5. It is celebrated nationwide in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla, where the holiday is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla).The date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, and to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War.

I didn't know anything about Cinco De Mayo when I lived in the eastern part of the US. Then when I moved out west, I learned about Mexican traditions and Chihuahuas!

My Chis got to stay up an extra hour, although that meant they were just sleeping in the living room. Hope everyone appreciated their babies on unofficial Chi Appreciation Day!
