Celebrating Latinx Heritage Month
By: Andreana Chou Latinx Heritage Month spans from September 15th to October 15th. Why start on September 15th, instead of September 1st or October 1st? Well, September 15th aligns with the Independence Day celebrations of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Prior to these Latin nations, Mexico and Chile also declared their independence from Spain on September 16, 1810 and September 21, 1810 respectively.
