If you’re planning to celebrate Cinco de Mayo this year, consider enlivening your festivities by including beautiful handcrafted glassware from Mexico.
Why do People celebrate Cinco de Mayo?
The historical facts are that on May 5th, 1862, Mexican forces won a military victory over Napoleon III’s French forces at the Battle of Puebla. They did this despite being out-numbered and poorly-supplied. The Mexican victory is commemorated at a symbol of resistance to domination by a foreign power.
