Before you grab that margarita or a beer to celebrate Cinco de Mayo this Sunday, Dallas-based Mexican actor, Kuno Becker, wants everyone to watch the film, “Cinco de Mayo: La Batalla” and get educated first. Although an important day in Mexican history, Cinco de Mayo is not a federal holiday in Mexico, nor is it celebrated as lavishly or as widespread as in the U.S. “We do celebrate there, but not as big as here,” says Becker, who was born and raised in Mexico City. “It’s important to learn the culture of our neighbors. It’s not Mexican Independence Day." Instead, it commemorates General Ignacio Zaragoza leading of the poorly-armed and outnumbered Mexican army, and defense of the city of Puebla, when the French army — approximately 8,000 men — attacked the city during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). Cinco de Mayo, or May 5, commemorates the Mexican army’s miraculous victory over France at the Battle of Puebla.
