Signed into law way back in 1968, National Hispanic Heritage Month is a time to celebrate and honor both Latin American and Hispanic cultures, as well as the contributions, influences, and achievements the Latin American and Hispanic community has made to the United States.
Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15th to October 15th. These dates were chosen to align with the beginning of the Mexican War of Independence, which ultimately freed Mexico and Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua from Spanish rule. Pretty fun fact, right?
