What’s Hispanic Heritage Month?

National Hispanic Heritage Month is a time when we recognize and acknowledge Hispanic contributions to the United States.

It was established by legislation sponsored by Rep. Edward R Roybal in 1968. It was only for a week, and thanks to Ronald Reagan in 1988, it was covered for a 30-day period.

Why start Hispanic Heritage Month on September 15th?

The date September 15th was chosen because it is the Independence Day of five Latin American countries:

  • El Salvador
  • Costa Rica
  • Nicaragua
  • Guatemala
  • Honduras

Other Latin American countries have their independence days in September as well.

Recently many people recognized Hispanic Heritage Month for contributions and getting to know people and culture.

Now that you have an understanding of Hispanic Heritage Month, let’s look at these fabulous recipes you can create at home while learning more about Hispanic American contributions to our great country.
