First of all, Cinco de Mayo is  NOT Mexico's Independence Day. Mexico's Independence Day is actually on September 16. Cinco de Mayo is not really celebrated in Mexico, however, it is celebrated heavily in the United States.

Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. In the United States, Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage. Cinco de Mayo traditions include parades, mariachi music performances and street festivals in cities and towns across Mexico and the United States.
