Hispanic Heritage Month

In America, we celebrate the history and achievements of those from Central and South America who have contributed to the American culture. It begins on September 15, which is significant because it is Independence Day for five Latin American countries. The five countries associated are Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. This day allowed them to shape not only their own culture but our American culture in many ways.

Hispanic culture has influenced America in many different ways from entertainment to food and business. One area they have heavily influenced in the United States is the performing arts. Some of the most famous musical artists are Hispanic singers who are nationally and internationally known for their culture of music. Americans use sounds of Hispanic music such as the famous Drake and Justin Beiber (recent American citizen).

The Hispanic culture has even influenced America with its  food. People visit Mexican food restaurants such as Taco Bell and Chipotle and even cook dishes at their own homes such as tacos, burritos, and homemade salsa. These foods have become a normal part of American cuisine.

These are just some of the things about the Hispanic culture that shows how much they have done for American culture. Celebrate this month with by enjoying the cultures of Hispanic heritage.
