Hispanic Heritage Month recognizes the contributions Americans with roots in Spain, Mexico, Central America, South American, and the Spanish-speaking nations of the Caribbean have made to American society and culture.
Hispanic Heritage Month always starts on September 15, a historically significant day that marks the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. The designated period is also a nod to those from Mexico and Chile, which celebrate their independence on Sept. 16 and Sept. 18, respectively.
