Hispanic Heritage Month!   September 15th-October 15th is Hispanic Heritage Month
his celebration is unique in that it begins in the middle of one month and ends in the middle of the next month.  Why does this celebration begin on September 15th?  This day is recognized as the Independence Day of five Latin American countries:  Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua.  Mexico celebrates its anniversary of independence on September 16th and Chile on September 18th.
