Cinco de Mayo Gift Baskets
Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over the French forces of Napoleon III on May 5, 1862, at the Battle of Puebla. This town of Puebla is the most popular city in Mexico on that day. There are large parades that feature people dressed up as Mexican and French soldiers. Vendors sell traditional Mexican foods as well as patriotic clothing and accessories for people to wear during the celebration.
In the United States and some parts of Canada, people often host Cinco de Mayo parties with their friends and family. The colors of the Mexican flag (red, white, and green) often appear in costumes and party decorations. People decorate for Cinco de Mayo with balloons, streamers, and flowers. Mariachi bands or other Mexican folk music is also played at these celebrations and there is often traditional Mexican dancing. There are party stores that have all of the decorations for this spirited holiday. But Gift Basket Café has the gift baskets with a favorite Mexican sweet…..chocolate! We have sweet baskets galore! And we have something for that outdoor cook who wants to add his voice (or food) to the fun.
