      This is a very popular holiday in Mexico, but the most widely it is celebrated in America. It is sometimes called the Mexican St. Patrick's Day (not a bad analogy, given that St. Patrick's Day is also celebrated more in America than in Ireland).

      On this day, special attention is paid to the Mexican-Americans, Mexican cuisine, national music and folkloric dancing. In some areas, large festivals, celebrations and carnivals are held which spread well over the whole week.

      Red, white and green are the colors of the Mexican flag - the most popular colors of the first week of May.
On this day people wear sombreros and consume exclusively Mexican food. The most courageous participate in the contest of eating hot peppers, which are called halupinya.

      Participants of the holiday break down dolls stuffed with candies hanging on a tree. These dolls are called Pinyaty.

      Nowadays, Mexican holiday Cinco de Mayo has become an international holiday. And if you ask what it represents a now, the answer will be it is a celebration of Mexican culture.
