National Hispanic Heritage Month is the period from September 15 to October 15 in the United States, recognizing the contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans to our country's history and culture. The 31 day observation period honors the Independence Day for many Latin American countries including El Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Honduras which celebrate September 15 as their Independence Day. September 16th is the Independence Day for Mexico, September 18th for Chile, September 21st for Belize and El Dia de la Raza (Columbus Day) is October 12th. 

Celebrating children of Hispanic descent is important along with exposing our Anglo children to how other cultures are similar, different, and enhance their own culture. In fact, this exlporation and celebration shouldn't be relegated to just one 31-day period and should become a part of our everyday reading and conversations!
