Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month is a celebration of the contributions, cultures, and histories of those in the United States whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America, and South America. It is observed annually from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15.
The start date of Sept. 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for the Latin American countries of El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Guatemala. Additionally, Chile and Mexico celebrate their anniversaries of independence in September.
