Cinco De Mayo Gift Ideas – The Crochet Edition


May 5, 2018 by Robin, Avon Rep and Owner at Imperial Crochet

3 Fun Etsy Finds!

Cinco de Mayo is a day for celebrating the culture of Mexico with great Mexican food and drinks.  I’m embarrassed to say that although I knew of the holiday and have even attended a Cinco de Mayo party or two, I wasn’t fully aware of the reason for the celebration so I looked it up.

Don’t you love Wikipedia?

The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s difficult victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.
