This month, we celebrated Cinco de Mayo in a very different environment than normal. While the fifth of May historically celebrates a Mexican military victory over Napoleon, in popular culture it has become a day of parades and festivities (with the largest annual celebration occurring in Denver, CO).

However, with many states still under (or slowly emerging from) stay-at-home orders, this year’s celebrations were quieter, with most people doing Taco Tuesday at home with their families.

While Cinco de Mayo 2020 was a little more low-key, you can embrace the spirit of the holiday this week and every week with OverDrive’s expansive catalog of Spanish-language content for students.
