Cinco de Mayo Is a Minor Holiday in Mexico!

Posted by Anne Damon in Cinco de Mayo, Fiesta, Paper Folk Art
There's sort of always a fiesta going on at Zinnia Folk Arts--it's colorful, there are lots of handmade party decorations and LOTS of gifts but hey, it's  Cinco De Mayo pretty soon and we thought we'd celebrate. Cinco de Mayo is a very minor holiday in Mexico and is pretty much only celebrated in one city, Puebla,because it marks the victory of the Poblanos over the French invaders in 1862. In the United States it's become a holiday that celebrates Mexican heritage and pride. It's not Mexican Independence Day (that's September 16th) as so many people mistakenly believe.
Here are a few items you might like for your own celebration!
Mexican Paper Flags, Papel Picado
Mexican Papel Picado or Paper Flag Strings, $12 for 50 flags

Mexican Paper Flower Coronas or Crowns, $16 each
