Latino Heritage Month
Beginning September 15, 2014
12:00 AM-12:00 AM
Latino Heritage Month is observed from September 15 to October 15, by
celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American
citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and
Central and South America. The day of September 15 is significant
because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American
countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In
addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on
September 16 and September18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day or Día de
la Raza, which is October 12, falls within this 30 day period.
