National Hispanic Heritage Month

Each year, from September 15 to October 15, we Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month.  It is a celebration of history and the contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.

In 1968, it started as Hispanic Heritage Week.  In 1988, President Ronald Reagan expanded it to cover a 30 day period that starts on the 15th of September and ends on the 15th of October.  It was enacted into law in August of that same year, on the approval of Public Law 100-402.
