    Commemorating the Battle of Puebla, an important David-versus-Goliath-type battle in Mexico's quest for independence from France, Cinco de Mayo is one of our favorite holidays, even if it doesn't come with an extra day off from work. In the US, it's a time to celebrate Mexican heritage and tradition with all our friends… beginning with a little history lesson and ending with a round (or five) or margaritas. One of our favorite ways to commemorate the day is by making — and then destroying — a homemade piñata.

Click through and check this DIY out! Olé!
