September is Hispanic Heritage Month

I have always wondered why Hispanic Heritage Month starts in the middle of September on September 15 -October 15, 2017
It’s because September 15th marks the anniversary of Independence from Spain from five Latin American countries: El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. Mexico celebrates it’s independence on the 16th and Chile follows on September 18th.
