Hispanic Heritage Month
National Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from Sept. 15-Oct. 15 in the United States to celebrate the culture and traditions of Hispanic Americans. The observance begins in mid-September because Sept. 15 is the anniversary of independence for Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua; Sept. 16 is independence day for Mexico; and Sept. 18 for Chile.
