Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Battle of Puebla, which took place in
Mexico on May 5, 1862. The battle was part of the Franco-Mexican War,
which began as a result of new Mexican President Benito Juarez defaulting
on the country’s loans from European governments. Britain, France and
Spain sent troops to Veracruz to demand reimbursement. Britain and
Spain eventually withdrew, but France continued its advance, hoping to
carve out a territory of Mexico for itself. France sent 6,000 troops to attack
the small town of Puebla de Los Angeles in east central Mexico. Juarez
responded by sending 2,000 men. Though they were outnumbered, the
Mexican army was victorious over the French. However, it would be
another five years before the French would withdraw from Mexico
completely. The first record of a Cinco de Mayo celebration appeared in
an article in a newspaper in Columbia, Calif. three days after the Battle
of Puebla. Big parties commemorating the Mexican military victory took
place.

Presidents’ Day is an American holiday celebrated on the third Monday in
February. Originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington, it is still officially called “Washington’s Birthday” by the federal government. Traditionally celebrated on February 22—Washington’s actual
day of birth—the holiday became popularly known as Presidents’ Day after
it was moved as part of 1971’s Uniform Monday Holiday Act, an attempt to
create more three-day weekends for the nation’s workers. While several
states still have individual holidays honoring the birthdays of George 
Washington, Abraham Lincoln and other figures, Presidents’ Day is now
popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents past and present
