Cinco de Mayo, which is on the 5th of May every year is the annual celebration of Mexican heritage. Many Americans incorrectly assume that Cinco de Mayo is Mexico’s Independence Day. Instead just like Saint Patrick’s day is the day to celebrate Irish culture for Irish Americans, Cinco de Mayo is the day for Mexican Americans to show pride in their unique heritage. The American celebration of Cinco de Mayo features parades and parties including a Mariachi band, Mexican folk music, dancing, Mexican-American cuisines, and the most famous Mexican jokes. Yes, we have aggregated some of the best Cinco de Mayo jokes and puns for you below.

But do you know why we actually celebrate Cinco de Mayo? Cinco de Mayo is the Spanish word that literally means the fifth of May. Yes, Cinco means “fifth” or “five” in Spanish and de Mayo is “of May.” Cinco de Mayo commemorates the date of the Mexican army’s victory over France in the Battle of Puebla on 5th May 1862. The victory of the smaller Mexican force against the large French force was a boost for the Mexicans as a small troop of untrained Mexican soldiers at Puebla defeated a well-armed large group of French invaders.

Most people are unaware that Hellmann’s mayonnaise was first produced in England in 1912. The Titanic, in reality, was carrying 12,000 jars of the sauce, which were slated for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, the ship’s next port of call after her stop in New York. This would have been the single-largest mayonnaise shipment ever sent to Mexico. The huge ship, however, did not make it to New York, as we all know. The ship sank after colliding with an iceberg, and the cargo was lost forever. Mexico’s mayonnaise-crazed citizens, who had been looking forward to its arrival, were devastated by the news. Their grief was so severe that they established a National Day of Mourning, which they continue to observe today. Every year on May 5th, the National Day of Mourning is observed, and it is known as – Sinko De Mayo.
