Happy Mousey Monday everyone! Today is Cinco de Mayo!

Cinco de Mayo is celebrated in the United States and some parts of Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla. The holiday originated with Mexican-American communities in the American West as a way to celebrate the cause of freedom and democracy through the first years of the American Civil War. Today, the holiday is meant to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride.
