America celebrates the culture and traditions of U.S. residents who trace their roots to Spain, Mexico and the
Spanish-speaking nations of Central America, South America and the Caribbean.
The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded
by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on
October 15. The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin
American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and
Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September18, respectively.
