pdfNational Hispanic Heritage Month: September 15 to October 15 Pennsylvania’s Hispanic Population Nears 500,000 hide

The Pennsylvania State Data Center at Penn State Harrisburg reports that September 15 to October 15 is National Hispanic Heritage Month. America and Pennsylvania celebrate the culture and traditions of those residents who trace their roots to Spain, Mexico and the Spanish-speaking nations of Central America, South American and the Caribbean from September 15 to October 15. The origins of Hispanic Heritage Month can be traced backed to 1968 when Congress authorized President Lyndon B. Johnson to proclaim a week in September as National Heritage Week. The observance was extended to a month (September 15 to October 15) in 1988. September 15 was chosen as the starting date for the celebration because it is the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively.
