    Cinco de Mayo is a regional holiday limited primarily to the state of Puebla. There is some limited recognition of the holiday in other parts of the country.

    Celebrations tend to draw both from traditional Mexican symbols, such as the Virgen de Guadalupe, and from prominent figures of Mexican descent in the United States, including C?sar Ch?vez.

    To celebrate, many display Cinco de Mayo banners while school districts hold special events to educate pupils about its historical significance. Special events and celebrations highlight Mexican culture, especially in its music and regional dancing.

    Examples include baile folkl?rico and mariachi demonstrations held annually at the Plaza del Pueblo de Los Angeles, near Olvera Street.
    I'm not Mexican so I do not celebrate it.

    Why do American Schools celebrate it? Do they celebrate special days of all nationalities?
