. . . is more of a holiday in the U.S. than in Mexico.

Mexico’s independence day is celebrated Sept. 16.

Today’s anniversary memorializes the Mexican Army’s defeat of the French force in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Mexican immigrants have popularized the festivities as a way to celebrate their heritage.
