It is quite interesting to realize that Cinco de Mayo is more largely celebrated in the United States than in Mexico, where the festivities occur mainly in the state of Puebla. According to some sources, this difference can be explained by the fact that the events of the original Cinco de Mayo served as inspiration for the activists in the Chicano Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. Today, Cinco de Mayo is celebrated all over the United States, but it continues to be a day in which Chicanos celebrate their rich ethnic heritage.
