Before sending out Cinco de Mayo Invitations, you should know its history has its roots in the French occupation of Mexico. The French occupation occurred in the aftermath of the Mexican American War of 1846 - 1848. This war was the beginning of a national crisis during the 1850's for Mexico. Years of fighting a civil war and the Americans had left Mexico devastated and bankrupt. So on July 17, 1861, President Benito Juarez signed a moratorium proclaiming that all foreign debt payments would be suspended for a two years, with the promise that payments would resume after the two years.
The party is celebrated on a much larger scale in the U.S. because if it had not been for the Battle of Puebla victory, it is believed that France would have helped the South in the American Civil War, and this could have had an impact on the war. Chicanos celebrates this day in appreciation of its cultural and historical significance. In the U. S., sending Cinco de Mayo Invitations have become more significant than in Mexico.
